Integration topic of panel discussion

Written by 

The Jackson County Public Library in Sylva will host a panel discussion about history of integration at 7 p.m. Oct. 9 in the community room. 

The talk will revolve around “Journeys of Courage: Integrating Education in Jackson County,” a Western Carolina University student-created exhibit that is on view at the library. Artist and scholar Marie T. Cochran, director of the Appalachian Art Project, will facilitate the program, which will feature speakers Victoria Casey McDonald, Reggie Rogers and Ernest Johnson. WCU public history students will be on hand to give informal tours before the discussion.

“Journeys of Courage” is part of the larger “Journey Stories” project, which includes a Smithsonian exhibit on view at the Mountain Heritage Center at WCU from Sept. 29 through Nov. 9 as well as local journey stories displayed at the library.

“Journeys of Courage” is sponsored by the Friends of the Jackson County Public Library and the Mountain Heritage Center.
