James Farmer visited Prince George’s County and assisted in labor organizing, but that happened in Bowie. Notice how the sign has a handshake with a white and black hand. I am really interested in learning more on the impetus behind naming this street to honor James Farmer.
Did he speak in the town?
Did he have a relative who lived in town?
Was he organizing?
What brought him to Seat Pleasant?
Great piece of local history. If anyone knows anything please share!
