February is Black History Month.
Throughout the month I will be sharing pictures and other information from the archives to highlight Kingsport’s African-American history. For a schedule of Black History Month events please visit the City of Kingsport’s website. There are a lot of events so be sure to check them out!
For more information on Black History Month on the national level, visit http://www.africanamericanhistorymonth.gov.
Can you identify the people in the picture above? If so, feel free to leave a comment with identifications or email the archives at firstname.lastname@example.org.
