The Georgia Heritage Room is honored to annouce that Ms. Paula C. Wright will be here on Thursday, April 21st at 6:00 pm to present:
LOVE FRAMED IN BLACK & WHITE: A POWERFUL STUDY IN LOVE, RACE, AND COURAGE
Paula C. Wright, a descendent of the Edgefield, South Carolina Ramey family inherited at the time of her grandmother’s death a genealogical treasure, a box filled with over 500 photographs documenting seven generations of her family. Since childhood, Ms. Wright has been interested in her incredible family story, but with the gift of the photographs she knew that the story needed to be told to the wider world. Please join us in the auditorium of Augusta Public Library on the evening of Thursday, April 21 as Ms. Wright unravels the story of the courageous marriage in 1872 of her white, third great-grandfather Judge William Ramey to former Edgefield slave, Kitty Simpkins; and the generations which followed, including those who made their homes in Augusta, Georgia. Many of the photographs Ms. Wright inherited will be featured in an exhibit which will run through the month of April. The exhibit will be in the Georgia Heritage Room on the third floor of the Augusta Public Library. This program is free and open to the public. Please call 706-826-1511 for details.
