The African American Storyline Project is a not for profit project with its fiscal agency being the Community Focus Foundation. It is an initiative under Morning Glory Inspirations to capture, preserve and share our county’s local black history in different ways (historic signage, education, interviews, historic art murals, video, oral history, informational kiosk, digital maps, websites are a few examples.)  The African American Storyline Project, under the umbrella of Morning Glory Inspirations, strives to actively involve and engage the community in the process.

  • captures, preserves and shares our local black history story in different ways
  • involves the community in the process
