Teresa West to speak
On Sunday, Feb. 20, at 2 p.m., at the Seaford Museum on New Street, Teresa West, a local resident who has dedicated her life to community service, will speak about the African-American culture and the significance of the exhibit that she currently has in place in the museum.
West was born in Seaford, graduated from Laurel High School, lives in Bridgeville and is an Intervention Specialist at Laurel Intermediate School. Her great-grandmother escaped from slavery as a young girl.
She has received many awards for her community involvements. Her commitment to serve others has taken her as far away as Haiti. She is in the process of publishing a book entitled, "A Journey to Justice," an account of the African-American's struggle in America.
Families and children are dear to her heart. She wants children to learn a pride for their people and to be proud of their ancestors and their roots. She wants them to see the positive side of black history and the milestones that their ancestors accomplished.
Providing resource materials and books about African-American history to libraries and schools in the area are just a part of her interest in helping others.
The program is sponsored by the Seaford Historical Society and is open to the public. There is no charge. For further information call the Seaford Museum at 628-9828.
