History Happy Hour: Black Cyclists in the United States, 1880-1910

April 15 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

- Free
History Happy Hour will be back in-person on Thursday, April 15th with Dr. Robert Turpin from Lees-McRae College and his research, “Black Cyclists in the United States, 1880-1910.” Dr. Turpin’s presentation will share the history and accomplishments of Black cyclists during this era and will go beyond Marshall “Major” Taylor who was a well-known cyclist from the 1900s. Like all of our History Happy Hour presentations, this topic is unique and we can’t wait to know more.
This month’s program will be available in-person at the Jonesborough Visitor’s Center (117 Boone Street). The program will start at 6:30 p.m. in the auditorium. Per CDC safety guidelines, seats will be distanced and masks are required inside the Visitor’s Center. We have limited seating in the auditorium, up to 30 people, so please make sure you arrive early if you’d like a seat. The program will also be available online via Zoom and Facebook live. The Zoom login information is available through the Chester Inn Museum’s Facebook event and the Heritage Alliance’s website. You can connect directly with the program via Zoom or watch the live stream on the Chester Inn’s Facebook page. This program is free and open to the public!
