Black History - Sellersburg: Historical "Hollowed Grounds"

The Association for the Study of African American Life and History

The Association for the Study of African American Life and History announces the 2016 National Black History Theme Hallowed Grounds: Sites of African American Memories

…the imprint of Americans of African descent is deeply embedded in the narrative of the American past. These sites prompt us to remember and over time became hallowed grounds. One cannot tell the story of America without preserving and reflecting on the places where African Americans have made history….The Association for the Study of African American Life & History has selected this annual theme to bring attention to the centennial celebration of the National Park Service
