Halls Hill Stories: Challenging Racism Continued @ Calloway Methodist Church

Halls Hill Stories: Challenging Racism Continued @ Calloway Methodist Church

Challenging Racism: Continued welcomes you to an evening of local history and stories with Wilma Jones, author of My Halls Hill Family: More Than a Neighborhood.

Part memoir, part historic chronicle, Jones’ multi-generational narrative, My Halls Hill Family, begins in the mid-1800s and sketches modern drama in an evocative, personal statement on segregation and life-long community ties.

The historic Hall’s Hill neighborhood is full of stories and history. You might have heard of the Hall’s Hill Wall, come learn more about the history and community behind it.
