Meet Authors Nadine McIlwain and

Monday, June 13 - 6:00 PM


Celebrate Juneteenth with the authors of African Americans of Canton, Ohio: Treasures of Black History. Q and A will follow and books will be available for purchase and signing.

From Canton's earliest days, the black population has contributed to the city's, and even the nation's, prominence and prosperity. During World War II, nineteen-year-old Harold White joined the famed Tuskegee Airmen of the Ninety-Ninth Fighter Squadron. Only a few years later, Dorothy White persevered through prejudice to become Canton's first black teacher, paving the way for a long line of dedicated teachers stretching to the present day.
