Kicking Off Black History Month

Blogger's Note: Our thanks to Joe Zlomek over at The Sanatoga Post for alerting us to this event. The information here comes from his post:

BIRDSBORO PA – As part of its Black History Month observances, The Daniel Boone Homestead will feature historic presenters John and Lillie Foster on Sunday, Feb. 12 for a program titled: “Journey to a Dream: A Program of African American History.”

The presentation spans the time from slavery in the United States through the election of an African American as the nation’s president. The program begins at 2:30 p.m.

The Fosters are owners of Foster Voices, a personal coaching and development business. Both grew up in the south and experienced first-hand much of what is portrayed in “Journey.”

Their presentation  uses music, poetry and drama.

In addition, the 1st Pa Regiment will be offering flintlock shooting demonstrations at the rifle range from 12 to 3p.m.  

Staff will be offering guided tours of the Boone House as well throughout the day.
