The Revelers Club presents Black Renaissance: A Celebration of Community
Join us for a celebration of the rich history of the African American community in Lynchburg to include a “memory walk” down Fifth Street. The highlight of this event will be the recognition of local black-owned non-profit organizations and their work in the Lynchburg community. The four non-profits to be honored during this year’s event will be The Revelers Club, The Legacy Museum of African American History, The Anne Spencer House & Garden Museum, and Building Bridges Productions, Inc. We will also give special recognition to The UP Foundation for their invaluable contribution to our community.
