The next speaker for the Friends of Historic Halifax Bites of History program will be Stephanie Credle.

The program will be held in the board of commissioners room at the Historic Courthouse on February 22 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets are free.

She will discuss her book Coming Together — The Unity of a Nation in which she uses her family history, conflicts, struggles, and victories, to tell the story of African Americans’ search for freedom and inclusion in Halifax County in the community of Thelma.

“As I complete the writing of this book, I’m back home in Thelma,” she said. “I’ve come back with a greater appreciation of the struggle my grandparents had to acquire and maintain the land. I’ve returned with a heightened knowledge of the historical significance of this community.” Credle has spent the last 30 years researching the people who lived in the community, migrated there and survived there. “I’ve come home to ensure the story of a people, a quiet, hidden people, is told and appreciated. Finally, I’ve come back with a charge to help this community serve as a light to a nation. It’s time, because after years of searching — I know who I am — a bridge builder.”
