Black Heritage Plaza Shindig

black-heritage-shindig-poster-for-screen-01Please join us and invite your friends and family!

Bring your lawn chairs for an evening of lively music, good food and refreshing drink in the fellowship of friends!

The Black Heritage Plaza Shindig is in honor of Milledgeville’s community history and heritage at the rejuvenated Black Heritage Plaza in downtown Milledgeville, next to the historic Allen’s Market building at 101 W. McIntosh Street, on Friday, September 23, 2016 from 6-10pm. The Plaza was originally developed during the planning of the Bicentennial events in 2003. During that time, it became evident that a permanent, public space that could be utilized by all citizens would be a meaningful and appropriate way to honor the contributions that African-American businesses have made to the history and heritage of the downtown commercial district. This project visually enhanced downtown Milledgeville with a sensitive and significant reminder of the once vibrant black commercial district. The original plaza, the current upgrades and the Black Heritage Plaza Shindig all help to promote a broader understanding of and real appreciation for the significant roles that African-Americans played in the history and culture of this community.

Fall Line Rambler will kick off the evening’s music at 6:30pm with a sound self-described as “Rock and Blues with a sprinkling of Country.” Continuing with an upbeat blend and rounding out the evening, headliner Dynamic Sounds of Phunk brings some serious jams beginning at 7:30pm. Dynamic Sounds of Phunk features the performances of local musicians Jerry Hargrove on sax, BJ Hill on percussion, Victor Tucker on percussion, Troy Barnes on lead guitar, Dexter Mack on bass, and Rodney Speights on keyboard.

This celebration is sponsored by The City of Milledgeville, Allied Arts, Milledgeville Main Street, and the Knight Foundation through a grant awarded through the Knight Foundation Fund for Milledgeville of the Community Foundation of Central Georgia. There is no admission cost for this outdoor event and Barberitos will be vending their savory food and refreshing drinks to satisfy stomachs and please palettes. Don’t miss this opportunity to relax in the company of friends and be the first to see the magnificent upgrades when the Chamber of Commerce makes it official with a ribbon cutting at the renovated Black Heritage Plaza.
