Several participants from African American Voices of Past and Present, previously know as The Wisdom of the Elders, will display artwork and share their stories and insights with visitors as part of the genealogy and research program.

In addition to student performances and art, the event will include a soul food tasting, community partners fair, and a children’s activity center featuring games and crafts.
