Admiring the Hush Arbor: Inspiring Community Voices
Hosted by West Florida Historic Preservation, Inc. and the Florida Public Archaeology Network, Admiring the Hush Arbor: Inspiring Community Voices is an outdoor, seated program that explores African American culture, resistance, and experience within the framework of hush arbor practices. During the antebellum period, a hush arbor was an outdoor meeting space where enslaved people would practice religious traditions in secret. The program is composed of 15-20 minute presentations by speakers, musicians, and artistic performers with a goal to attract a variety of attendees that will learn something new in a meaningful way.
This program is funded in part through a Florida Humanities Greater Good: Humanities in Academia Grant in partnership with West Florida Historic Preservation, Inc.
