In recognition of the 1965 Selma to Montgomery March and Women’s History Month, the National Park Service will host a two-day storytelling festival Thursday and Friday March 21-22 at the Lowndes Interpretive Center on U.S. 80 West in White Hall.

The event will be held from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and both the public and groups are invited to attend “and learn the history of African American Women who were involved in the Selma to Montgomery March/the Civil Rights Moment and who have inspired innovation through technology,” said Anthony Bates of the National Park Service.

Bates said park rangers will be available to questions at the information desk.
