African American Coal Miner's Conference

Ubuntu Village will be a participant in the African American Coal Miner's conference at Penn State Fayette Campus this March 15-17, 2007. The theme of this conference is "Living Together, Working Together: African-American Miners and the Coal Culture of Southwestern Pennsylvania".

Later on in the year, we hope to hold a few workshops with local church bodies to gather stories, recollections, artifacts and photographs to contribute to the Coal & Coke Heritage Center. This preservation of history will be conducted as a project under Ubuntu Village Inc. If we don't make a concerted effort to provide this history, it may be lost for future generations.
