Liz Santeramo, a Verona resident who chairs the Women & Family Issues Committee of the League of Women Voters Montclair Area, has let us know that it is co-sponsoring a walking tour of South Montclair’s 
African American history at the end of this month.

Led by Montclair town historian Mike Farrelly, the tour is designed to capture African American history in Montclair, both before and after the Civil War.

The tour takes place on Saturday, May 31, from 10 a.m. to noon, and will start at the corner of Orange Road and Llewellyn Road.

What is this?

It is co-sponsored by the Montclair NAACP and the 
Montclair Historical Society, and a $5 suggested donation will go to the Montclair Historical Society.
