From Being Property to Owning Property
This virtual presentation from the Mitchell Young Anderson Museum in Thomasville will provide a brief history of the Stevens Street District in Thomasville, one of the few remaining and intact African American neighborhoods built after the Civil War. Included in this presentation is part of the museum’s story itself—it was formerly a boarding house in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries that stood at the heart of the Stevens Street District on Oak Street.
The presentation will feature Gylbert Coker (the museum’s executive director), Jan DeCosmo, Eboné Amos, Lililita Forbes, and Juliana Forero.
