The Enduring Families Project is the subject of this week’s talk. This theatre project focuses on telling the stories of early African Americans who lived in the La Crosse area from the mid 19th century until the early 20th century. You will see one of the project’s videos about La Crosse and West Salem resident, George Edwin Taylor, who was a Presidential candidate in 1904. Thanks to research from the project’s historian, Rebecca Mormann Krieger, we will get a snapshot into Taylor’s life here and after he moved out of the area.
Denise Christy is a retired English and Theatre teacher from Milwaukee, and producer of the Enduring Families Project. She will talk about the impact the project has had in the community, why it’s important to know about this history, and what impact it may have for future residents in the La Crosse area.
