An Evening with Wilma Jones: “My Halls Hill Family” (Keynote Presentation) FREE EVENT! @ Arlington Central Library - Barbara M. Donnellan Auditorium
Jun 23 @ 6:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Join Central Library in welcoming author Wilma Jones to discuss her book, “My Halls Hill Family: More Than a Neighborhood.”

The Halls Hill community’s roots were a pre-Civil war plantation. By the early 1900’s the neighborhood became 100% African American. Many of the residents were descendants of slaves. The Black communities in Arlington were consistently fighting Jim Crow racism and worked to raise their families with dignity and respect.

Wilma Jones is a fourth-generation resident of the Halls Hill – High View Park neighborhood. She’s a top performing sales director and an author, speaker and the CEO of Wilma J, LLC, a business consulting company.

RSVP for an event reminder.

This event is part of the Library’s celebration of Juneteenth.
