The city of Newark is partnering with the NAACP and University of Delaware on a historic preservation project.

They’ll be collecting oral history accounts from the New London Road/School Hill community this Saturday May 20th, as well as scanning and documenting mementos from current and former residents.

Delaware Public Media’s Megan Pauly spoke with Newark NAACP member Dr. Freeman Williams about the event, and that community’s  history.

 

The historic preservation project takes place this Saturday from 1-5 p.m. at the George Wilson Center - across from UD’s Clayton Hall on New London Road.
