The Paine College History Club will host its annual Living History Re-enactments on Saturday, March 28, 2015, at the historic Cedar Grove Cemetery. This year’s participants will present noted African Americans from the CSRA like Amanda Dickson-Toomer, one of the wealthiest black women in the late 19th century, and other prominent local figures in African-American history like Rev. Dr. C.T. Walker and Dr. T.W. Josey. “We are excited to host this re-enactment that showcases important figures in African-American history,” said Triest Fisher, president of the Paine College History Club. “Each made significant contributions to our community and we welcome everyone to join us for this event.”

Tours are scheduled for 10 a.m., 11 a.m. and 12 p.m. Admission is free. Cedar Grove Cemetery is located at 120 Watkins St.
