LHF Annual Meeting – MLK Day Presentation — Saturday – January 13 2024

Saturday, January 13 2024 at 2 pm join the Linden Heritage Foundation in the Courtroom of the historic Cass County Courthouse for a special event during the week of celebration of the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. 

History has lessons to teach us, if we will only read or listen. This is particularly true of the accomplishments of people of color. However, in some communities there is little evidence or knowledge of these achievements.

Invisible History:  Part II

1973 LK High Graduate, Mason Darrell Barrett,  Administrative Law Judge for the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in Alabama, and active member of the Fairview Community, will bring to the Courtroom again an oral history of the accomplishments of hidden figures with roots in the Linden African American community that will enlighten and inspire all.

In addition, an update will be provided on the placement in the Linden City Park of Historic Signage.

Following the program, the Linden Heritage Foundation will have its Annual Membership Meeting.  The Agenda for the Membership Meeting includes the election of Linden Heritage Foundation Directors.

A reception with refreshments will follow.
