Through daily weekday breakfasts with her grandmother, Ida Pearl Green, Kisha Davis learned stories of family and an African American community in Quince Orchard which went much deeper than the name of her school or a road named Quince Orchard.

At 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Feb. 6, Montgomery History will host a free online presentation about how Ms. Green’s life reflects the evolving Quince Orchard community.

At 105 years young, Mrs. Green is a lifelong resident of Montgomery County. Through her family’s history from slavery through integration of both schools and churches, her granddaughter–who now serves as the County health officer–shares the complex history of race relations in the County. It is a testament to resilience and turning adversity into something beautiful.
