The City of Savannah is partnering with the Beach Institute to take part in Lift Every Voice: Savannah’s African American Historic Sites Free Day. Eight Savannah cultural organizations and sites are collaborating to honor the community’s African American history in celebration of the recent opening of the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture. The event will take place on Sunday, August 20 from 12 p.m. - 4 p.m., offering visitors free admission to the participating sites, including the Beach Institute.
August 20, 12:00 PM - 4:00 PM
The museum’s plan to reinterpret this space—recognized as one of the best preserved urban slave quarters in the South—will bring new awareness to this important piece of history. Visitor experience in the space will be enhanced through installations that draw upon the award-winning scholarship from the Slavery and Freedom in Savannah project and feature recorded excerpts of slave narratives that will give a representative voice to the people who inhabited the Owens-Thomas House Slave Quarters.
