1. Lynchburg historic Marker to honor ’Cile Turner. 2016 article by Sherese A. Gore in the Lynchburg The News & Advance. “Turner was an affluent white woman, “but to hear her sing, she sounded African American and her music is all based on African-American songs, lullabies and traditions,” said Jane Baber White, sponsor of the marker. ‘I think one of the most fascinating things is that she was respected and admired by both races back in a time when that wasn’t normal,’ she said.” (Submitted on June 16, 2017.)
