THOMASVILLE, GA (WALB) -

More than one hundred students from Camilla took part in black history enlightenment on Thursday at the Jack Hadley Black History Museum in Thomasville.

South Mitchell County Elementary students toured the facility that includes thousands of black history artifacts. One volunteer from North Carolina says he was happy to come help with the event.

"If you don't know your history, you don't know where you came from, we feel that this tour for these young kids represents the epitome of getting the information out, because it's all here," said Lonnie Vicks.

On Saturday The Tallahassee Buffalo Soldiers Motorcycle Club and the Thomasville area Buffalo Soldiers Horse Cavalry will be at the museum from 10am to 2pm.
