The public is invited to the La Porte County Genealogical Society meeting this Tuesday to learn more about an early Michigan City civil rights activist.

At the 6:00 pm meeting in Meeting Room B of the La Porte County Public Library, Susan Webster will introduce the program, An African American Woman Who Achieved So Much. It is the story of Naomi Anderson (1843-1899), who was born in Michigan City to free black parents and was an early suffragette, temperance leader, and civil rights activist.

All are welcome.
