The Browning Family & Billings' Black Community

dec 16, 2021 at 12:00 PM


Learn more about the history of Billings' historically black neighborhood and the special contributions of a founding family, Walker and Ruth Browning and their descendants. This family came to Billings after a decade of Old West adventures and quickly made a huge impact on the local political infrastructure, including a 1914 stand against segregation. WHC staff member Heather Torrence will present a lively story of a neighborhood and a family who were deeply committed to civil rights.
