Posted 02/05/2021

Black History is a time of celebrating the contributions African Americans made and continue to make in America.  The book pictured "Images of America:  African Americans In Nacogdoches County" by local author Jeri Mills, will give insight to African Americans in the Piney Woods of East Texas. 

 

Nacogdoches is the oldest town in Texas, named after a Native American.  The Native American played a major role in hiding slaves in the woods of East Texas from their slave masters, was home of the Caddo Indians.

 

This book can be purchased at the Charles Bright Visitors Center ( 936-564-7351 / 200 E. Main St. in Nacogdoches) or on Amazon.com and will prove to be informative regarding the history of African Americans in the forest areas of East Texas.
