Mr. Russell Edwards & Family

Mr. Edwards gathered representatives from four generations of his family (in descending order) on the steps of his Northside home. A proud member of the male chorus at St. Joseph CME, here he reflects on the many changes in Chapel Hill/Carrboro that he has witnessed over the course of an abundant 90 years. From left to right, the family memebers are Miss Jasmine Miller, Ms. Carmen Miller, Mrs. Joy Edwards Miller, and Mr. Russell Edwards.
