Voices from Mount Pleasant

 

voices-from-mount-pleasant

This presentation comprises a wide selection of Mt. Pleasant oral histories gathered over the years by students of Cabrini College, now Cabrini University. These oral histories exist because of a class taught by Dr. Sharon Schwarze entitled “Democracy and Diversity”.

The community of Mt. Pleasant, located in Tredyffrin Township, is mostly African American. While the neighborhood itself dates back to the early 1800’s, most of its residents are descendants of families who settled there during the 1900’s as part of the Great Migration.

The firsthand accounts of earlier times in this tight-knit community provide a valuable insight into a bygone era and document some of the many changes it has seen over the years.

Radnor Memorial Library is proud to present this event in partnership with Radnor Historical Society and the First Baptist Church of Wayne. The First Baptist Church of Wayne is located at 1012 Upper Gulph Rd., Wayne, PA.

Registration is not required. Please call me at 610-687-1124 x21 if you need more information.

I hope to see you there–

Pam
