In recognition of a significant void in the history of African Americans in Hanover County, Carolyn Hemphill along with a group of classmates from then, John M. Gandy High School (the public high school for African Americans during segregation years) decided to dig deeper into the history of African Americans in Hanover County. The Society seeks to uncover and preserve the history of African Americans in Hanover County and to help enrich and promote stronger family and community unity through our historical findings. Our goal is to educate the public by increasing their awareness and appreciation of Hanover’s legacy.
