Event Description

In celebration of Black History month, Farmville Public Library will be hosting a program on the life of Herman Bryan (H.B.) Sugg on Monday, February 12 at 6:30 pm at the library. Presenter Dominique Baker will explore Sugg’s life growing up in the old south, his work as both an educator and a community leader, and a history of the school which is his namesake. Several items will be on display from his research including books of old photos and diplomas. A native of Farmville, Dominique Baker attended Farmville schools and graduated from Farmville Central High School in 1994. Having studied the history of education in Farmville for the past eight years, he became interested in the topic when he began organizing the 2011 “40 Years of Integration” event in Farmville. For more information, please contact David Miller, Library Director, at (252) 753-3355 or email dmiller@farmvillenc.gov.
