On Friday December 18th, Dr. Alfredteen Harrison will speak at Koinonia Coffee House at 9:00 am for Friday Forum. She is president of the Scott Ford House, Inc. and will be discussing a community project seeking oral histories to be recorded by the Margaret Walker Center chronicling the stories of African American Midwives.
On Saturday, December 19th at 9:00 am, the Smith Robertson Museum and Cultural Center will host a day-long program of “Sharing African American Midwife Stories.” The event will focus on the Scott Ford House on Cohea Street in the Farish Street District.
This event will allow those who attend to share their own stories through oral histories recorded by the Margaret Walker Center and to donate historic items and papers that will eventually be part of a museum and interpretive center.
The event is free and open to the public.
