YOUNGSTOWN — Mahoning Valley Historical Society will present “Crazy Quilts in the Mahoning Valley” in a special online Bites and Bits of History program on Thursday (May 21) at noon. 

The video presenters will be Virginia Draa and Jessica Trickett, MVHS collections manager. The program was rescheduled from its original date in March because of the closure of Tyler History Center and stay-at-home orders during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The presentation will be available on the MVHS Facebook page  and YouTube channel.

“We’re thrilled to be able to share this special part of Mahoning Valley history with the community in a virtual way, given the current public health precautions,” Trickett said in a news release. 

The next program, set for June 18, will feature another rescheduled topic and speaker from a canceled February appearance, “What Brought Them Here: African American Migrations into the Mahoning Valley” by Stacey Adger, local historian and genealogist. For information, go to the MVHS website.
