Please put on your calendar there will be an ORHPA Membership meeting on Thursday, Sep 9, at 7pm. Our meeting will consist of a special showing of the TN-85 (Oak Ridge-85) Exhibition on the historic desegregation of Oak Ridge Schools in 1955. We are excited to say that some of those brave African American students of that era will be there to provide personal accounts of their experiences.
Martin McBride and Rose Weaver have led a team that have worked for months developing an outstanding exhibit on the TN-85 that is set up in the Den Room of the Midtown Community Center (102 Robertsville Road, corner of the O.R. Turnpike). You will not want to miss this special event that celebrates an important part of Oak Ridge history! This meeting is open to the public, so feel free to bring a guest.
