African American Heritage Festival
African American Heritage Festival
In honor of Black History Month, educators throughout the Lowcountry and beyond are invited to bring their students to experience African American Heritage Festival. From its roots in Africa to the Americas, and especially South Carolina, elementary and middle school students will be immersed in African American culture and history through a variety of activities including demonstrations, reenactments, performances and hands-on experiences.
Students will tour through several demonstrations and presentation areas:
  • 20124.jpgHarriet Tubman and the Civil War
  • The Magic of Stories and Music from Sierra Leone
  • Exploring Gullah Culture
  • Capoeira Charleston
  • Much More...

Time 
The festival will take place from 8:30 a.m. – 2 p.m. on February 28, and students will have the opportunity to visit each exhibit area throughout the day.  

Lunch 
Boxed lunches are available for purchase and orders should be placed at least one week in advance. Participants are welcome to bring their own lunch; however, concessions will also be available for purchase on site. 

Registration 
Registration fees are $8 per student. One chaperone per every eight students receives free admission. Pre-registration is required to participate in this event. Call (843) 795-4386 to register.
