Greetings to the Lombard Historical Society and the Sheldon Peck Homestead from Kenneth B. Morris at the American Writers Museum in Chicago. Morris is the great-great-great grandson of Frederick Douglass and the great-great-grandson of Booker T. Washington.

“As the stewards of Lombard’s heritage, we will make the past meaningful in order to impact our community’s present and future.”
