How Much Do You Know About Halls Hill in Arlington?
The Arlington Committee of 100 welcomes Wilma Jones, a fourth-generation resident of Halls Hill, and author of “My Halls Hill Family,” her third book, as our June speaker. Many native
Arlingtonians grew up with little or no knowledge of Halls Hill, a completely African American community until the 1970s, that was walled in from the rest of Arlington for much of its history.
Ms. Jones will discuss the beginning of Halls Hill during the Civil War and present the many historical moments that affected all of
Arlington’s African American communities through to current day.
