Black History at Hopewell II

Frances Delmar addresses a crowd of about 30 people Tuesday night.
It had been my hope to cover an event Tuesday at the Schuylkill River Heritage Area HQ in Pottstown, but Mercury responsibilities pulled me to the Pottsgrove School Board meeting.

I wrote a preview of this author's lecture here on Jan. 31.

On Tuesday night, Frances Delmar talked about her book and her area of expertise, "The African American Experience at Hopewell Furnace."

Luckily for you, if this area of local history interests you as much as it does me, someone else covered it for us.

The Schuylkill River Heritage Area Blog picked up the slack and wrote about the event. You can read it here.
