Event Details

Come hear the family story of Dr. William Pickens III, who traced his ancestry all the way back to Humphrey Morrey, who served as the first mayor of Philadelphia in 1691. Pickens’s family tree also includes Richard Morrey, whose marriage to freedwoman Cremona formed one of the city’s most prominent interracial families. Pickens’ journey will inspire you to search for your own family roots. Cosponsored with the Urban League of Philadelphia and Southwest Airlines.
