Celebrating Black History Month - Ken-Gar: Then and Now at Montgomery County Public Library, Kensington Park Branch

Kensington, MD Claim this Listing

One of our local neighborhoods, Ken-Gar, was founded by former slaves in 1892. Over the years, the neighborhood has transformed from a haven for African-Americans to a diverse community of residents from other countries and backgrounds. Local resident, Karen Jackson will share the fascinating history of the struggles and victories of this 125 + year-old community. To complement her stories, Lee's Memorial African Methodist Episcopal Church, the oldest church in Ken-Gar, will showcase a performance by some of their members.
