Join HSCC for lunch on February 21st at Noon! Grace Hall at Grace Lutheran Church, 21 Carroll Street Westminster 21157. For more information go here:

96-year-old Warren Dorsey, the grandson of a slave, grew up poor in Sykesville during the 1920s and '30s. Jack White will conduct a casual interview with Warren to discuss his slave grandmother, his parents, and the many challenges he overcame during his struggle to educate himself and escape poverty, as chronicled in Jack's book, In Carrie's Footprints.

Please read my story about Warren Dorsey, “Time Flies: Warren Dorsey to speak at Historical Society Box Lunch Talk on Feb. 21,” by Kevin Dayhoff.

Mr. Dorsey is an amazing man. He is a celebrated Carroll County native son who rose above poverty and segregation to become an author, a patent holder, a microbiologist at Fort Detrick in Frederick and later in life a teacher and school principal. Please read about him here:
