African American Heritage Day

Saturday, March 16, 2019

Join us at Leigh Farm Park to celebrate African American culture, traditions and history through lectures, demonstrations and hands on activities. In addition, be a part of collecting history by bringing your family's funeral program and obituaries. The Triangle Chapter of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Society will scan the original documents for donations to an area archive for genealogist to use nation-wide. Throughout the day you will be able to tour the Enslaved People's Cabin on site and learn about the lives of those once enslaved by the Leigh family. There will be activities for all ages although most lectures will be geared for ages 15 and up. No need to register, just come out rain or shine!

Free and no pre-registration required.

Age: 19 and up
