Black History Lunch & Learn

56 Casey Jones Lane, Jackson, TN 38305

The Old Country Store invites you to a Black History Lunch & Learn on February 11th from 12-2pm to celebrate the Jackson-Madison County Bicentennial theme of Black History. Guest Speaker Dr. Logan Hampton from Lane College will be speaking on the "Freshmen Four" and Woolworth sit-ins and how they effected the Jackson community during the Civil Rights Movement. Guests will receive a "shoebox lunch" with chicken, mac and cheese, green beans, cracklin' cornbread, and a drink for $8. These specialty lunch boxes are decorated with black history facts and serve for a great learning opportunity about the oppression black people felt during the Jim Crow era when many black people were refused dine-in service at restaurants and ate their lunches from shoeboxes. We hope that you will join us to learn more!
