Celebrating Black History Month. The small sign on the side of this float reads “School Days, School Days, Good Old Golden Rule Days.” And so say the honored riders on this float in the Little Levels Heritage Fair Parade in Hillsboro on June 29, 2013. They represent the students and members of the Seebert Lane Colored School and the Pleasant Green Methodist Episcopal Church. They gathered with family, friends and members of the community for the dedication of the school and the church, both of which had recently been added to the National Register of Historic Places.
