Postcards from Camp Parsons

Location: Sumner Library

Join Senator Bobby Joe Champion, Autumn Frazier-Cotten, and Seitu Jones in conversation and about Camp Katharine Parsons, moderated by Anthony Taylor at Sumner Library.

Founded in 1956 by Phyllis Wheatley Community Center, Camp Katharine Parsons served as a haven for Northside youth who spent summers exploring nature. Learn about efforts to restore and re-open the camp, and help us collect oral histories.

Camp alumni are encouraged to share stories and pictures, too! For more information, call Aaron at 612-977-3247 or email
