Sarah Wesley is a native of West Chester whose writing and artistic career has included working at the Chester County Historical Society (CCHS) and serving as the main coordinator for an annual African-American Art Show that benefited a local NAACP scholarship fund. Her community work has focused on helping young people connect with local black history. This has included writing and editing Word, an African-American history newsletter for which she was honored by the black student union at Henderson High School in West Chester. Sarah was instrumental in drawing attention to the historical importance of the Star of West Tent to obtain a State Historical Marker there - the only marker of its kind in the East End. She also assisted in the scholarship and community outreach for two award-winning exhibits at CCHS, Between Women, and Just Over the Line: Chester County and the Underground Railroad. Her work with CCHS (where she was employed for 15 years) also led her to write the original walking tour that formed the basis of this book.
