Historical researcher Jessica Kaplan brings this small Arlington African-American community to life based on newspapers articles, Civil War soldiers’ drawings, and Southern Claims Commission documents and provides us with a tiny window into the lives of its residents.

The program is free and open to the public. It will take place in the Reinsch Library auditorium on the Main Campus of Marymount University. This event is part of a monthly series of public programs sponsored by the Arlington Historical Society and Marymount University’s Department of History and Politics.
