I first became interested in the histories of those who once lived in Ripley, TN by doing genealogy on my husband’s family. For me it became an obsession of sorts to collect and gather as much information as I could find on the Black experience in Ripley, TN. I will use this blog to share those experiences and information that I find. As stated in my About column I am by no means a historian. I am just a history fanatic sharing information with you.
