Event description

Description

The DeKalb History Center and the Flat Rock Archives will host an evening reception on August 24th from 7:00 - 8:30 pm to announce the opening of an exhibit dedicated to the historic Flat Rock Community – one of the oldest African American communities in DeKalb County. The Flat Rock exhibit will replace “Tears and Curses: a Human Look at the Civil War” and will officially launch in February of 2019.

The reception will include wine, light refreshments, a live oral history withPatsy Moon, and other guest speakers. A video detailing the history of the Flat Rock Community will be featured in the “Reclaimed by Nature” Arabia Mountain exhibit. Guests will enjoy a small photo gallery preview of the coming exhibit and the opportunity to view our current exhibits. This partnership is monumentally consequential as it will explore and document, in detail, a community that has thrived as one of the oldest African American slave resettlement areas in America. Best Part is the event is Free and Open to the Public!
