Join us for FREE admission to the Owens-Thomas House & Slave Quarters for a special tour focused on the lives of Emma, Peter, and Diane, who were some of the enslaved people who lived on the site.

Several Savannah area cultural organizations and sites are collaborating in August to honor our community’s African American history, in partnership with the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of African American History and Culture (NMAAHC).

Lift Every Voice, whose name comes from the historic song of the same name by James Weldon Johnson, began as a global initiative by the Smithsonian, encouraging partners, organizations, and individuals who study, love, or support African American history and culture to join NMAAHC in their inaugural year celebration (2016–2017).
