Annual Meeting: Researching the Lives of Asheville’s Enslaved Population
04/06/2022 @ 5:00 PM - 6:00 PMFree
Join us at our annual meeting for an update on WNCHA’s progress over the last year, election of trustees to WNCHA’s board, and a presentation by Executive Director Anne Chesky Smith on WNCHA’s effort to research the people who were enslaved by the Smiths and McDowells, the owners of the brick mansion that now serves as WNCHA’s headquarters. Besides telling stories of family ties and resistance, Chesky Smith will provide information on how to do this kind of research.
