Rapp Road Historical Association

Rapp Road Historical Association showed a presentation of their migration of their history on Feb. 12. The national theme for Black History Month this year is “Black Migrations.”

Two local residents whose families’ roots are in Shubuta, Mississippi — a town known for two horrific group lynchings — talk about the way that their relatives responded to the racism they encountered in their hometown. 

The preservation movement started with saving Mount Vernon and has its roots in what is typically called 'white man's history,' said Susan Herlands Holland of the Historic Albany Foundation.
