"Textiles, Teachers & Troops: Greensboro 1880-1945" Launch
How did Greensboro become the city it is today? From 1880-1945, three distinct forces helped transform the city: textiles, teachers, and troops. Now, six important area institutions have come together to create a free online tool that documents that transformation and makes it available to the public.
In addition to demonstration of the project website and a brief outline of Greensboro history during the period, Dr. Kevin Cherry, Deputy Secretary of Archives and History in the North Carolina Department of Cultural Resources will speak.
