African Americans During the Civil War Era Tour

January 17 @ 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM

Balancing Survival & Freedom: The Experiences of Winchester’s African Americans during the Civil War Era

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. frequently reflected on the past and specifically the Emancipation Proclamation. Join Jonathan Noyalas ’01, M.A., director of Shenandoah University’s McCormick Civil War Institute, for “Balancing Survival & Freedom: The Experiences of Winchester’s African Americans During the Civil War Era.” The tour, making use of various sites in Winchester’s historic district, highlights the roles Winchester’s African Americans, both enslaved and free, played in making emancipation a reality and how those efforts inspired hope, not only in the 1860s, but also a century later.

The tour gathers in front of Shenandoah University’s Feltner Building on the downtown walking mall.

Contact Jonathan Noyalas at jnoyalas01@su.edu for more information.

Registration required.

Limited to 25 people.
