Black History Month Program: The Friends of Handley Regional Library are pleased to sponsor a talk by James “Jim” Nickens as part of Black History Month. The event will take place Saturday, February 22nd at 2pm in the library. Mr. Nickens grew up near Strasburg and took the bus to Douglas School in Winchester during the days of segregated schools. After serving in the military he worked closely with Hale Boggs, Democratic Congressman from Louisiana helping count the votes needed for passage of various legislative bills. He will share many personal stories of working and observing the many politicians, including President Lyndon Johnson, future Presidents Gerald Ford and Bill Clinton. He’ll also tell of the many African-Americans who made a difference in Washington, D.C. In addition to many first-hand stories, Jim will bring in photographs to share. This program is free and open to the public.
