The 1st Savannah Black Heritage Festival (SBHF) was held August 20, 1988, and was originated under the guidance and leadership of the late Westley W. Law and the Association for the Study of African American Life and History (ASAALH), with moral support and general funding from the City of Savannah.
The Savannah Black Heritage Festival (SBHF) is one of the many ethnic cultural arts events sponsored annually by the City of Savannah’s (GA) Department of Cultural Resources. The focus of the festival is to present performances, exhibits and activities that attract a broad cross-section of age, socio-economic and ethnically diverse residents in Savannah and its outlying areas as well as visiting tourists.
This year’s Black Heritage Festival theme is Reflect, Reform, Rejoice. These three words represent the history of African Americans as they marched from enslavement to freedom to contributors. Since this trek has been long and arduous, what has been accomplished embodies reformation that upon reflection is cause to rejoice this cultural event!
