Natchez Trace Program

In today's Memphis Commercial Appeal:

Trace Presents History Program

Robert Bruce Smith will present the history program "William Johnson: Witness to a Vanished Natchez World" at 11 a.m. Saturday in the Natchez Trace Parkway Visitor Center near Tupelo (Mississippi).

Smith will focus on Johnson's life as a free black barber and diarist living in Natchez during the antebellum period.

The talk is free. The Natchez Trace Parkway Visitor Center is at mile 266, just north of Barnes Crossing.
