Marvin T. Jones presents photographs, maps and narrative of his community’s 275 year-old history of landowning mixed-race people in North Carolina’s Hertford County area. The written history of the Winton Triangle begin in 1584 when the English first learn 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. This presentation has been given many times in North Carolina – of course – in Virginia, Maryland, Chicago, Tennesee, New York, West Virginia, and is now going across the Rockies.
