Museum’s black history presentation is Thursday
The Middlesex County Museum and Historical Society will hold a living history presentation tonight, February 18, at 7 p.m. at the historic courthouse in Saluda.
At this unique event, Rashard J. Wright will bring to life the person and work of the county’s beloved and well-known educator, John Henry St. Clare Walker, in celebration of Black History Month.
Wright, an eminent Virginia educator, served as a former assistant superintendent of Middlesex County Public Schools. His presentation will highlight the long and dedicated career of Mr. St. Clare Walker, a native of Middlesex.
The presentation is free and museum members will host a reception at the nearby museum annex afterwards, with refreshments. Attendees will have an opportunity to meet Wright and also peruse the museum’s outstanding exhibit on the history of public and private education in Middlesex County.
