The next meeting of the Brunswick County Historical Society will be held on Monday, May 8th, at the Brunswick Electric Membership Corporation Building, 795 Ocean Highway West, Supply, NC. The meeting begins at 7:30 P.M.

Author and historian, David Cecelski will be our presenter for the May BCHS meeting. A native of the North Carolina coast, Dr. Cecelski has written several award-winning books and hundreds of articles about the history, culture, and politics on the North Carolina coast. He is the co-recipient of the NC Literary and Historical Association's Crittenten Award for lifetime achievement.

His topic will be "Abraham Galloway: Former Slave and Freedom Fighter". Born in 1837 in the town of Smithville, Abraham Galloway has been called by some historians "the first African American civil rights leader" and is highlighted in Dr. Celcelski's latest book titled, The Fire of Freedom: Abraham Galloway and the Slaves' Civil War.
