African-American Experience in Vermont

On Tuesday, April 6 at 2 p.m. at the Nolin Murray Center next to St. Mary's Catholic Church on Pleasant Street in Springfield, Cyndy Bittinger will present the next Osher Lifelong Learning program titled, "The African American Experience in Vermont: Reaching for Equal Citizenship."

She will share many "firsts" for African Americans which occurred in Vermont.

Alexander Twilight was the first African American to earn a bachelor's degree at an American college and was the first African American to be elected to public office as a state legislator.

She will tell of Lucy and Abijah Prince of Guilford. Lucy is acknowledged as the author of the first poem by an African American woman in the late 1700s.
