Lightnin'NACOGDOCHES-  The C.L. Simon Recreation Center Gymnasium will be the site for this year’s African-American History Celebration on Tuesday, February 25th at 6:00 p.m. The event will feature a reenactment by community members of major events in African-American history. The program will also feature the Carpenter Elementary choir, Nacogdoches musicians and church choirs.

“We invite families and children to come to the program. We have received such overwhelming support from the community that we outgrew the meeting room. Once again, Ms. Jeri Mills has put together a great cast of community members. We look forward to the event,” said Mercedes Franks, library director.
