Black History Month is observed by celebrating the lives of some of our finest talents.

This week, we lost one who cannot be replaced.  Joe Thompson was living history personified -- he was also one of Roy’s Folks, as you’ll see in the video above.

The memorial service to celebrate Thompson’s life will be held at noon Saturday at the Mebane Arts Center.
