“WE WERE HERE”
THE "WE WERE HERE" PROJECT
This historical storytelling project celebrates our area’s rich African American heritage and acknowledges the societal and cultural erasure endured by the Danville and Boyle County African American community in the name of urban renewal. This extensive campus and community collaboration brings together esteemed authors, change agents and performing artists with Centre College students and the entire community to shed light on our collective history and build bridges for our connected future.
In partnership with the Danville-Boyle County African American Historical Society and Centre College’s Program in Anthropology & Sociology.
