Grand Opening: Early African American Pioneers of Central Illinois
This new exhibit explores and illuminates African American families who moved to Central Illinois in the 1800’s and who still have descendants in Springfield. The exhibit is the result of research and interviews done by board member Elizabeth Alexander and volunteer Patricia Davis. It was sponsored and funded by a grant from the Sangamon County Historical Society. No charge but donations are welcome.
