Description

A Chronology of Black Culture & History in Harrisonburg & Rockingham County, Virginia, compiled by Rosemarie Joswick Palmer, 2021.

With references to state and national milestones sprinkled throughout, this remarkable resource offers nearly 100 pages of annotated history related to Harrisonburg-Rockingham’s African American community. Resource references for the entries are especially valuable. Appendices include Sources & Other Publications of Interest; and lists of the Colored Schools of Rockingham County, Lucy F. Simms Educator of the Year Awardees, and local African American Cemeteries; and rolls of Rockingham United States Colored Troops (USCT) and WWI African American Servicemen.

This will be a fantastic research for me, our students, and our library patrons, and I am confident that it will get a great deal of use. – Simone Horst, Special Collections Librarian & Archivist, Menno Simons Historical Library, Eastern Mennonite University.
