Black history took a fashionable turn in Henry County Friday, as local seniors donned their best costumes celebrating their ancestry.
The Heritage Senior Center, at 1050 Florence McGarity Blvd., in McDonough, hosted its third annual African-American Fashion Show. The event featured more than 30 men and women, modeling their best African garb.
Elsie Ponder, of McDonough, initiated the program at the Heritage Senior Center. She said the reason she did so, was to fill a void and to pay tribute to those who came before her.
