"Celebrating the Work African Americans have done in Building America" and "Footprints of Education........"
The Surry County African American Heritage Society committee welcomes everyone to its celebration of the African
American family and the contributions of people of African decent to the
building of America. We invite you to join us in a forum on Surry County African History. Discuss ways to collect, preserve, protect, and display
our rich history for future generations. We are strongly seeking public input which will help guide future efforts for the society. Forum will end with a fish fry.
