We were excited to see the premiere of Harford 250: In Their Own Words on Friday, July 7th. This video, produced by Harford TV, features more than 30 county residents sharing their personal stories and memories of Harford County.

Each segment of the film features a variety of people from all walks of life, sharing their unique perspectives on Harford County’s history. We were particularly struck by the stories of the African American residents who shared their experiences of segregation and discrimination. Their stories were both heartbreaking and inspiring, and they offer a valuable reminder of the challenges that have been overcome in Harford County.

We also appreciated the stories of the young people who shared their hopes and dreams for the future of Harford County. Their enthusiasm and optimism were contagious, and they gave us hope for the future of our community.

Overall, we thought Harford 250: In Their Own Words was a well-produced and informative video. It is a valuable resource for anyone who wants to learn more about Harford County’s past, present, and future. It is a powerful reminder of the rich history of our community, and it offers a glimpse into the bright future that lies ahead.

In addition to the stories that were shared in the video, we were also struck by the way that the video was produced.
