Join FAAA to explore the birthplace of artist William O. Golding including a 10am private tour of the historic Dorchester Academy & Museum, which was the first school for African Americans in Liberty county, founded by Golding’s father, William A. Golding (Golden). See new exhibits and learn about the history of the school and how the site later became an important meeting place for Martin Luther King, Jr., Andrew Young and other civil rights leaders in the 1960s. At 11am the group will tour the Midway Museum and see the Midway Congregational Church where the elder Golding preached. The group will have lunch at a nearby restaurant (not included in registration fee). Midway is an easy 45 minute drive from Savannah and carpooling is encouraged for this trip.
