AHS joins all of Arlington to celebrate our rich African-American history at the 28th annual Feel the Heritage Festival.  This FREE Black History Month event will feature live music and dance, dozens of vendors, free activities for kids, delicious food, cook-off competition, Hall of History with photos and artifacts for Arlington’s historically African-American neighborhoods and organizations and more.

Visit our booth where we’re featuring research by Jessica Kaplan and maps on “The Bottom” a hidden African-American enclave that existed for about 100 years but is now gone. You can test your knowledge of local African-American history with our quiz and check out our table top exhibit of African-American local historical artifacts.
