Together Cora & Wray have worked with U. Mass to excavate & recreate the W.E.B.Du Bois homesite. They’ve worked on the African American Heritage trail, along with members of their Family and Community. The University of Massachusetts has provided grant money and expertise to make these projects a reality.

Today, they’ll be speaking about the Clinton Church Restoration, PO Box 1075, Great Barrington, Ma 01230, intending to construct a Black Heritage Center for Everyone and to archive the papers of W.E.B.Du Bois.

The Church will be a place to gather and learn about the Black Experience in New England. Lectures will be planned and there is a Community Center available for event rental.

I invite anyone to share their projects and passions with me and our Community, on and offline. Let’s write our own stories. Need help or advice, contact me at “thevoiceofjoyce@earthlink.net”. Thank you.

The heart and pulse of “we the People”.
