10:30 a.m.

Hannibal Square Heritage Center

642 W. New England Ave., Winter Park

free; registration required

Churches have long served as more than places of worship in the African-American community; “black churches are the heart of the black community,” says Rebekah McCloud, author of Across the Tracks: A Collective History of Black Churches of Winter Park and its companion volume, Sacred Places, Sacred History: Black Churches of Winter Park. After a presentation at the Hannibal Square Heritage Center on the often overlooked history of the African-American experience in Winter Park, McCloud will lead a brief walking tour of three nearby churches. This Thursday-morning outing would interest lovers of history, architecture or just leisurely walks. – Jessica Bryce Young
