Laverne Feaster, who worked with the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service for 39 years, will talk about her childhood at Big Dixie plantation at noon Wednesday, Feb. 8, at the Old State House Museum, as a part of its Brown Bag Series.

Feaster attended the private Arkadelphia Cotton Plant Presbyterian Academy in Cotton Plant so she could advance beyond the 8th grade, the extent of education in the segregated public school system in which her mother taught. She earned a BS degree from Tennessee State University in Nashville and a MED degree from the University of Arkansas at Fayetteville. She was also appointed by Governors Clinton and Tucker to the Commission for Arkansas’ Future and the Keep Arkansas Beautiful Commission.

Admission is free. Participants are encouraged to bring a sack lunch; beverages are provided.
