The Winton Triangle’s history in Winton!

September 14 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

Marvin T. Jones presents photographs, maps and narrative of his community of landowning mixed-race people in North Carolina’s Hertford County area. The written history of the Winton Triangle began in 1584 when the English first learned about the area. The three main towns of the Triangle are Winton, Cofield and Ahoskie. The Winton Triangle’s story is that of a new people who cobbled success and identity despite colonization, wars, slavery and discrimination. Jones uses maps, documents and photographs to tell this 400+ year old story. While this presentation has been given many times in North Carolina and as far as Arizona, it is poignant to present it in Winton.
