SPEAKER: Sylvester Woolford. A native Delawarean, Syl Woolford currently resides in Newark. He is a graduate of Delaware State University and also received an MBA from Rutgers. He is recently retired from a career in accounting and sales. Most recently he worked for and retired from AAA MidAtantic in Wilmington. Syl’s interest in history began with the researching of his own family history. He traced his mother’s family for 200 years in the city of Newark, Delaware. With the upcoming celebration of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, he switched his research to the little told story of the United States Colored Troops who served in that conflict.
