February 23, 2023

Rev. Floyd Edwards of Mt. Olive Galilee Baptist Church and Emma Jean Couture, Kathy Reitz and Brenda Meyer hosted the Evansville Housing Pilgrimage February 18th at the Evansville African American Museum. Kelley Coures, presented by video about Evansville racial housing history. 50 participants enjoyed the discussion and a tour of the museum.

Did you know that Evansville had a pilot  trained at Tuskegee  during World War II or that the Lincoln Lions Basketball team beat teams across the country even though no local schools would play them? Highly recommend you visit the museum to find out more of the rich history this museum shares.
