Herald-Whig: Jim’s Journey marks fifth year of celebrating black history

Herald-Whig: Jim’s Journey marks fifth year of celebrating black history. “The center now is a repository for photographs, documents, literature and exhibits that highlight the African-American experience in the Hannibal area, a place where slavery flourished for decades until it was finally snuffed out in the wake of the Civil War, only to be followed by years of segregation and discrimination. [Faye] Dant told a crowd at Friday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony that as the Freedom Center’s collection of historic items continues to grow, efforts are under way to reproduce and digitize the center’s exhibits so they can be displayed to the world across the internet.”
