Online History Happy Hour: Langston Center History and Updates

November 19 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

The fourth season of History Happy Hour is wrapping up with an online presentation on Thursday, November 19th, at 6:30 pm!

Join us as we welcome a speaker from the Langston Centre in Johnson City, Tennessee, as they share stories about the building and Langston High School. The Langston Centre was built in 1893 as the Langston Normal School. A 1925 renovation, made possible by Rosenwald funding, added a gymnasium to the school.  Named after Virginia congressional representative John Mercer Langston, it served as a school for African American students from 1893 to 1965. The Langston Education and Arts Development organization has worked with the community and other groups to help restore Langston as a functioning community center for arts and education.

The program will be offered through the Zoom platform and will also be streamed live on the Chester Inn Museum’s Facebook page. Go to the Chester Inn Museum Facebook page for the link to the meeting room and for the password to login. The program will begin online at 6:30 pm and participants can join the Zoom meeting or stream live on Facebook at that time. Participants who use Zoom are encouraged to keep their microphones muted and relay any questions during the presentation to the chat. The program is free and open to the public!
