Those looking to learn a little bit about Carter G. Woodson, the man who in 1926 established Negro History Week, can do so by bringing their lunches over to the Sully Historic Site and taking in a presentation that features hands-on components. The event, costing $5 for Fairfax County residents and $7 for out-of-county guests, will take place Feb. 15 at noon.
When Carter G. Woodson established Negro History Week in 1926, he wanted schools and other organizations to study black history. The week of recognition has since grown to Black History Month. In honor of this month, learn about the enslaved people who made Sully their home during the 18th century. This program includes a visual presentation and hands-on elements. Bring your lunch and your questions, as the discussion is welcome. The program runs from noon to 1 p.m.
