Black History Month Events at the Library

Updated: Feb 6


Join us for 2 new installments of Conversations with Haddonfield's African-American Elders, presented in collaboration with the Preserving Black Haddonfield History Project.


February 10, 2024 at 12PM Join us for a conversation with Chef Ronald Voughs, moderated by Haddonfield Public Library Director, Eric Zino, and presented in collaboration with the Preserving Black Haddonfield History Project.

 

Mr. Voughs lived in Haddonfield during his formative years, before moving to Batesville (the African-American section of Cherry Hill just across the town line). His father worked his entire life for the Haddonfield Department of Public Works and ran a restaurant in Lawnside. He observed that white collar people lived differently than his family. He aspired to be like them and succeeded in doing so. 


February 11, 2024 at 12PM Join us for a conversation with Linda Armstead, moderated by Haddonfield Education Association Events Chair, Stacey Brown-Downham, and presented in collaboration with the Preserving Black Haddonfield History Project.

 

Ms. Armstead is “a true Haddonfield girl.”  She hails from a Legacy Family.  The former School #4 (one of two of the town’s segregated schools) has been her residence for her entire life.  In PRESERVE:  NARRATIVES FROM HISTORIC HADDONFIELD’S AFRICAN-AMERCAN COMMUNITY she recounts her experience as a Haddonfield Memorial High School Drama Club President, Madrigal singer, marching band member, and more.
