    John William Meadows (1874 – 1954) born a decade after Emancipation, was a leader in Cary’s African-American community during a time of great challenges. Teaching in Cary during the week and preaching in rural areas on the weekend, Meadows established a strong educational and religious foundation in Western Wake County. Artifacts from his life offer a wider glimpse of Cary’s black history and will be exhibited in the display case in the main entrance of the Page-Walker Arts & History Center from January 11 to February 17.  A reception open to the public will be held Friday, January 27 from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. at the Page-Walker Arts & History Center.
