“A Look Back to 1915: Prominent African-American Baptist Educators from northeastern North Carolina” Presented by Glen Bowman, Ph.D. Museum of the Albemarle will host Glen Bowman, Ph.D. on Wednesday, February 18, 2015 at 12:15 p.m. for an additional History for Lunch for the month of February. Dr. Bowman will present “A Look Back to 1915: Prominent African- American Baptist Educators from northeastern North Carolina.” Dr. Bowman’s presentation will address Calvin Scott (C.S.) Brown and Waters Normal Institute, which he founded in Winton; Peter Weddick (P.W.) Moore, founding principal of the Elizabeth City State Colored Normal School (in 1915 called State Normal School, now Elizabeth City State University), and Elizabeth City’s Roanoke Institute, which was founded as a private secondary school in 1896 on what is today Roanoke Avenue. This presentation will be supported by photos and documents that were located at the North Carolina State Archives in Raleigh, the Jackson Davis Papers at the University of Virginia, and the Rare Book Collection at the University of North Carolina—Chapel Hill. Almost certainly this is the first time in decades, at least, that these pictures have been presented in Elizabeth City. Dr. Bowman earned the Ph.D. in History at the University of Minnesota. Originally from suburban Philadelphia, he has been at Elizabeth City State University since 1999.

The Currituck Chamber of Commerce 14th Annual Business Expo, Home Show & Job Fair March 7th 2015 marks the 14th Annual Currituck Business Expo, Home Show & Job Fair. This year’s show promises to be the most exciting yet! The Expo is free and open to the public. This annual event is held by the Currituck Chamber of Commerce & the Homebuilder Association of Northeastern North Carolina. In recent years, we added a job fair element. This year to build on that element, the Northeastern Workforce Development Board will have training and employment specialists & a job search station on hand to assist those seeking employment . “The job fair has been a great success the past couple of years for job seekers and employers alike,” said Josh Bass, President of The Currituck Chamber of Commerce. We will be hosting a lego building contest for the children attending with their families. The Lego building contest was such a hit last year, we have decided to hold it again this year. This brings a family fun element to the expo. We will also be holding an American Red Cross Blood Drive. They are in great need and would appreciate your donation. There will be plenty of door prizes, a silent auction, live radio remote with Max Radio and something for everyone. “This is a great community event where you can learn about all of the terrific products and services Currituck and the surrounding area have to offer and even win prizes too!” said Bass. So come out and join us Saturday, March 7th from 10-3 at Currituck High School, Barco NC to learn all about your local businesses and community groups. *Photo taken by Walter V.
