In honor of Black History month, educators throughout the Lowcountry and beyond are invited to bring their students to experience a special event hosted by the Charleston County Park and Recreation Commission in February. Celebrating the traditions and histories of Africa and the Diaspora, African American Heritage Day 2013 will take place at North Charleston Wannamaker County Park on Friday, Feb. 22.
From its roots in Africa to its branches in the Caribbean, the Americas, and especially South Carolina, elementary and middle school students will be immersed in African American culture and history through a variety of activities including demonstrations, reenactments, performances and hands-on experiences.
