The African Americans: Many Rivers to Cross with Henry Louis Gates, Jr.

  • The Culture Mill Lab 1616 Jordan Dr. Saxapahaw (map)

This 6-part series chronicles the full sweep of African American history, from the origins of slavery on the African continent right up to America's election of a black president -- a portrait of a country that remains a nation deeply divided by race. Join us for the first two parts of this six part series.

The schedule is as follows:

6pm - 7pm: Part 1
7pm - 7:30: Break
7:30 - 8:30: Part 2

This event is a part of Saxapahaw Black History Month -- a collaboration between Saxapahaw businesses, organizations and residents celebrating the history, culture and accomplishments of African Americans, both nationally as well as within our own community.
