MILFORD — For Jeanette Sherrod, Milford's first African American woman postmaster, Black History Month holds a special place in her heart.
When Sherrod was sworn in as postmaster in 2019, she talked about her childhood in Mississippi and her mother leaving them for a year to travel to Bridgeport to find a better life. When she returned to Mississippi, she moved the family to Bridgeport.
