SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) – It’s time once again for the Savannah Black Heritage Festival (SBHF), now in its 31st year.
SBHF begins on Saturday, Feb. 1 and runs through Sunday, Feb. 23.
Presented by Savannah State University and the City of Savannah, the festival brings a variety of performances, exhibits and activities for all ages to celebrate the contributions of African Americans.
One of SBHF’s main goals is to give underserved youth and other citizens who may not otherwise have the opportunity to these special experiences — from lectures to entrepreneurial education and visual art presentations.
The theme of this year’s festival is “Your Story, My Story, Our Stories.”
Kuntrell Jackson, an activist and advocate for criminal justice reform and societal re-entry programs, will be facilitating a conversation focused on youth, the criminal justice system and life on parole.
WSAV is a proud sponsor.
Any changes with performers, dates, times or locations will be posted at savannahblackheritagefestival.org.
