Then Shenandoah Valley Black Heritage Project will host a program located at The Riverside Park in Elkton, Va. In the morning we will host an all-black segregated sports reunion. A host of guest speakers will share highlights of playing in leagues throughout the valley.
We will share photos, books, and memorabilia highlighting the accomplishments of black athletes. During the second half of the day, we will honor chefs from the 1960s and earlier who worked in establishments where they cooked and served, but were unable to eat on-premises. This is our 3rd annual program highlighting black chefs. The evening will be spent by the riverside listening to gospel music.
