Tuesday Morning Group series celebrates African American influence
Most aspects of West Virginia’s sesquicentennial celebration are set for later this week, but one part has already begun.
A series of events celebrating the political, educational and cultural impact of African-Americans on West Virginia kicked off Sunday afternoon at the state Culture Center.

It marks the day in 1865 when slaves in Galveston, Texas, first learned of their emancipation. Click the link to read more.
