Description

Union Brotherhood Society Building 1, GA. William McKinley Walthour, Sr., founded the Union Brotherhood Society or "The Society" in March 1932 to help provide for the proper burial of African American citizens. During this period of segregation and Jim Crow Laws, African Americans were uninsured and had to use homemade pine boxes to bury their loved ones. The organization collected dues of ten and twenty-five cents monthly from its members; enabling them to have death and health benefits. This building is in Mcintosh, in Liberty County GA.
