This year’s Untold Stories will travel back in time to the American Revolution, Civil War, World War I and World War II.  Join us as we take a whirl wind leap through time briefly witnessing glimpses of events that were experienced by our African American forefathers.  

Friends of Wilderness Battlefield (FoWB) is co-sponsoring a Black History Month event on February 22 (rain date, March 1) composed of four vignettes in several churches in old town Fredericksburg.   Each vignette will depict a scene portraying African American involvement in one of four major wars, from the Revolutionary War to World War II (WWII).  The history of the nation’s response to their service is conflicted.

This is an opportunity to experience some of this history “first hand”.  Each vignette will have local actors portraying scenes based on real people and their service before and after a particular war.  

This is FoWB’s 2nd annual Black History Month Untold Stories event and is co-sponsored by the John J Wright Educational and Cultural Center and the churches in Fredericksburg.  To attend, visit www.FoWB.org; a $10 donation is your entry fee.  For more information, contact Dick Rankin at 972-2862 or Barry Thompson at 972-3757.
