Lowndes Interpretive Center Anniversary

Saturday, Aug 20, 2016 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Selma to Montgomery National Historic Trail invites you to join us for our NPS Centennial and Lowndes Interpretive Center Anniversary, August 20th 2016 at 12:00 pm to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Lowndes Interpretive Center and 100 yr. birthday of the National Park Service.

This day will also be used to celebrate the contributions of 3 individuals of the Lowndes County communities, including John Hulett, the first elected African American Sheriff of Lowndes County, and later served as probate judge for 22 years. Willie Vaughner served 13 years as the second African American Sheriff in Lowndes County, and in 2004 was elected to serve as president of the Alabama’s Sheriff’s Association by his colleagues. Matthew Jackson was an African American who sold his land to be used as temporary housing for evicted Sharecropper and Tenant Farmer families in Lowndes County, and loaned his family home to SNCC in the 1960’s to be used as a Freedom House.

Visitors who participated or were affected by the Voting Rights Movement or The Modern Civil Rights Movement are encouraged to share their stories via oral history interviews at the programs conclusion.

The event will be held at the Lowndes Interpretive Center in White Hall, AL. There will be refreshments provided to celebrate the event, 1:00 – 4

Saturday, Aug 20, 2016 1:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Want to learn more about how to prepare effective grant proposals? It's all in the reading of the requests as well as in the writing! Join the Black Belt Community Foundation and learn the basics that apply to any application, no matter how small or how large. Bring an idea of a project you would like to develop OR an application for which you are considering applying. In the three hour session we will focus on the BBCF application and the Alabama State Council on the Arts applications, but the information applies to almost any request. This will be a practical, hands-on session, so come ready to work. Martha Lockett, Executive Director of ArsRevive, and BBCF board member will be the facilitator.
