LISTEN: African American Heritage Festival Encourages and Inspires Community


The 23rd Annual African American Heritage and Culture Festival took place in Jefferson County over the weekend. From a parade to live music, and a memorial walk to the original site of John Brown’s Fort – the festival offered a variety of events for visitors.

It was organized by the NAACP of Jefferson County, and they say the weekend is meant to bring people together and remember the history that helped shape our country into what it is today.
