Oral History Documentary Debut

March 1, 2015 @
Time: 4:00 PM

During the past two years, some area residents have shared their memories of the heyday of the old Baldwin block and Fayette Street, the historic heart and soul of African American life in Martinsville and Henry County. Their recollections of the facets of daily life— from church to school, work to social life, and more — form the basis for a 30-minute documentary. It aims to evoke the feeling of a neighborhood that hummed with vitality. The film has been produced for the New College Foundation (NCF) through partnership with the Fayette Area Historical Initiative (FAHI).

NCF is hosting a community viewing of this documentary on Sunday, March 1, 2015, at 4:00 p.m. at NCI’s new building. The event is free to attend and there will be light snacks available for attendees as they enjoy a look into local African American history.
