K is for Karlyn

Did you KNOW that Dallas County once had several thousand farmers, 
that fear of the boll weevil prompted the hiring of our first county extension agent
 or that numerous black-owned businesses once lined Selma's Lapsley Street?

Duke University graduate student KARLYN Forner shared her research
 of Selma's socio-economic and political highlights from 1910-1920 at Tuesday's
 She's researching the 20th Century history of our town for her dissertation
 and previously shared the decade from 1900-1910.

 Now, we're looking forward to the next decade!

Linking to ABC Wednesday where the Letter of the Week is K!
