Join us for a presentation by Shamele Jordan regarding The Lawnside-Haddonfield Connection. We will start with the beginnings. What is the origin story for the two towns and their early connections? Then we will move to the modern era. What was it like to live and grow up being African American in Haddonfield? Then we will move to Now and the Future. What can we do to foster meaningful connections between the communities?
