Enjoy an afternoon of historical reenactments honoring our ancestors, as well as acknowledging alumni of, and welcoming descendants of, the Mars Hill Anderson Rosenwald School and Long Ridge Community.
The event will begin with a ceremony to honor Native and African American traditions through percussion, song, chants, poems, and prayer. Hear and share stories about the Ridge—growing up, experiences, and results. A traditional spring gifting ceremony will include sharing and planting for new beginnings, a nurturing of the earth, and each other.
Come out to give thanks, share food, and meet both new and old friends. There is no cost to attend – donations welcomed and appreciated.
Program begins at 4 p.m. at Mount Olive Missionary Baptist Church, 40 Mount Olive Church Drive, Mars Hill, NC 28754.
Event organized by the Rosenwald Collaborative.
