September


Alexander Twilight Birthday Celebration Week

Sunday, September 20-Wednesday, September 23, 2020

Alexander Lucius Twilight was enigmatic and magnetic. He was driven and visionary. He was also an impressive force as an educator through the mid 1800’s in historic Brownington Village who essentially built Athenian Hall  (the four-story granite building that would house both girls and boys from 1836-1858). He employed what is modernly described as place-based, experiential educational techniques.

You may also know that Mr. Twilight was the first African American to serve in a state legislature and to graduate from a United States college (Middlebury). Mr. Twilight’s father, a freed Black man, fought in the Revolutionary War.

We will be broadcasting all events on our YouTube channel.  You can also watch on Kingdom Access Television or NEK Television
