“Scalawag:” An Evening with Author and Human Rights Activist Ed Peeples
630 High Street
Danville, Virginia 24541
On the Occasion of the 150th Anniversary of the Founding of the Danville High Street Baptist Church and in honor of the courageous Virginians who participated in the Danville Civil Rights Movement
High Street Baptist Church.
Ed will be speaking at an exact replica of the pulpit where, on November 16th in 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. encouraged the black community to faithfully push on. The High Street Baptist Church and Danville played key roles in the south-wide civil rights movement in the 1950s and 60s. The church was at the time a regional SCLC headquarters and the sanctuary from Danville police use of fire hoses and beating demonstrators with ax handles during their marches against segregation, particularly on what came to be known as "Bloody Monday," June 10, 1963. A historical exhibition paying tribute to these heroes and heroines will be on display in the church.
The event is hosted by the Danville Historical Society and the High Street Baptist Church.
