The Middlesex County Museum and Historical Society Inc. will present its 2019 Preservation Award to the Black Church Cultural Affairs Committee at 3 p.m. Sunday, October 6, at Antioch Baptist Church, 159 Oakes Landing Road, Saluda.
This annual award is presented to individuals or entities who have made significant contributions to the public understanding of Middlesex County history, reported Bessida White.
In 1994, the Black Church Cultural Affairs Committee, with Norfolk State University historian Tommy L. Bogger, published A History of African-Americans in Middlesex County, 1646-1992. This volume remains the only comprehensive history of African Americans in Middlesex County. The award will be presented to the Rev. Robert D. Brown and the Rev. Fred D. Holmes Jr. as representatives and only surviving members of the committee.
