John Brown House Community Forum and Open House

Thursday, July 27th, Jason Ferrell, of the Wayne County chapter of Showing Up for Racial Justice, will share how he started the group in a neighboring county and the possibility of one developing here.

The Summit County Historical Society will host monthly Community Forums this summer on Summit County’s relationship with the 19th century movement to abolish slavery and the modern history of Civil Rights.

Each forum features panelists that will make brief presentations on historical and contemporary issues related to John Brown as well as the Maple Valley neighborhood. After each presentation, there will be a moderated question and answer discussion about the history issues presented and how the Summit County Historical Society might use the John Brown House to better serve the Maple Valley community. For each program, the Open House starts at 4:00pm, the program at 6:00pm.

A sheep herding demonstration will follow at the conclusion of the forum.
