Carroll County History Project

Carroll County History Project

Be a Part of History!
Come to this Unique Premiere

Friday, October 3, 2008 at 6pm
Westminster’s Carroll Arts Center
Refreshments served at 5:30 pm

Learn about the rich history of Carroll County at the unveiling of the three-part Carroll County History Project. Join special guests Dr. Debra Johnson-Ross from McDaniel College, Jean Lewis of the Carroll County NAACP, independent film maker Leo Eaton of Eaton Creative, and independent producer Marilyn Maguire as they introduce the project and make presentations on the importance of capturing oral history.

Watch personal interviews with local residents for a glimpse of life in “the old days” through the Carroll County Remembers Project, a collection of oral histories fashioned after National Public Radio’s StoryCorps. In a similar vein, Carroll County: Through the Eyes of the Black Experience relays personal histories from the perspective of minority residents. Guests will also get a preview of the new documentary Carroll County’s Legacy created by MPT producer Marilyn Maguire.

To reserve your seat for this free event, call (410) 386-4415. The Carroll Arts Center is located at 91 West Main Street in Westminster, Maryland.

The Carroll County History Project was developed by Community Media Center, Carroll County Public Library, Carroll County NAACP, the Human Relations Commission of Carroll County, the Historical Society of Carroll County and the Carroll County Genealogical Society.
