Black history to be traced in talk Sunday

By From page A3 | February 20, 2014

The Yolo County Historical Society will celebrate Black History Month with a lecture at 2 p.m. Sunday by Jeannette Molson, who has spent 35 years researching her family’s history through slavery, fighting as soldiers in the Civil War in the U.S. Colored Troops regiment, relatives in the Underground Railroad and a relative who fought with the New York 107th.

The program will begin at 2 p.m. at the Hattie Weber Museum, 445 C St., in the northeast corner Davis’ Central Park. It is free and open to the public.

“Help us pay tribute to the generations of African-Americans who struggled with adversity to achieve full citizenship in the American society,” a news release said.
