"Its not Black History, It’s American History -- even though there are some dark chapters," said Price House Commission member Clifton Harryton Anderson. For more than 10 years, Anderson has served as the coordinator for the Black History poster exhibit. This year’s exhibit was on display Feb. 20 through Feb. 24.
Local middle and high schools, as well as local organizations and community members, were asked to research and create a poster based on the topic assigned by Anderson. North Central Middle School submitted a poster on James M. Ashley, Camden High School submitted a poster on George Washington Williams, Camden Middle submitted a poster on Juneteenth and the Continuous Learning center submitted a poster about Paul Dunbar.
Anderson hopes that the posters served to educate and inform the community about the struggles and accomplishments of African Americans.
