Written by Seán Duffy with supplemental research and design work by Erin Rothenbuehler, Ohio County Public Library Local History Specialists, and presented by Ron Scott, Jr., Cultural Diversity & Community Outreach Director at YWCA Wheeling, the program will take place in the Historic Courtroom at West Virginia Independence Hall.
