The public is invited to attend “It Takes a Village: Carver Village” Black History Month program on Saturday, February 8, beginning at 3 p.m. at the Aaron Jones Family Interactive Center located across from Pascagoula High School. This free public program is hosted by the Pascagoula Negro/Carver High School Alumni Association and is the 4th Annual program held in celebration of local black leaders, historical places and other remembrances of the community. This event is intended to recapture the historical legacy of Carver Village and introduce the history to younger generations about a segregated society. It will also seek to capture the views of the times relating to black businesses such as the Village Drug Store, its owners, and tenants; a doctor, a barber, and a beauty shop. Other local businesses will be remembered as well through oral and written history. The program will include familiar music, stories, drill teams, historical landmark presentations, artifact and photo displays, and guest speakers from around the community. Refreshments will be served. Co-sponsors are Pascagoula Public Library Genealogy and Local History Department and Jackson County Historical and Genealogical Society.
For more information, call the Pascagoula library at (228) 769-3078 or visit the library at 3214 Pascagoula Street.
