Gene Stowe, formerly of the Charlotte Observer, will discuss his book 'Inherit the Land' and talk about race relations in Marvin and Union County during the early 20th century and the racial implications of the trial of Miss Maggie's will at two upcoming events as part of Black History Month.
The first event will be held Sunday, Feb. 12 at 3 p.m. at the Chesterfield Genealogy District Chapter Meeting, Old Chesterfield County Courthouse (100 Main St., Chesterfield SC).
The second event will be held Sunday, Feb. 26 at 3 p.m. at the Griffin Monroe of the Monroe Library.
'Inherit the Land: Jim Crow Meets Miss Maggie's Will' tells the story of a sensational trial in Monroe in 1921 where a jury awarded a white woman's 800 acre Union County home place to a black family. The verdict, based on the people's decades-old close friendships across the color line, was quickly forgotten in Monroe, but became the source of rare racial harmony in the farming village of Marvin.
