African-American History Festival


Join park staff, local historians and clubs as we commemorate the life and contributions of Robert S. Abbott on the 60th anniversary of his death. We will also celebrate the culture and heritage of the Gullah Geechee people with a performance by ring shouters and cultural activities for all ages. The event will culminate in the dedication of a recently discovered African-American grave site around the Abbott memorial.
