Nat Turner Day


Sorry, registration has ended.

It was 188 years ago, on August 21, 1831 that Freedom Fighter General Nat Turner led the Black Liberation Army into America's most successful slave revolt in Southampton County, Virginia. In honor of this historic revolt, the Nat Turner Library hosts an annual NAT TURNER DAY, a day of celebration, reflection and fellowship, sending peaceful vibrations to the Ancestral realm, giving thanks for our liberation from the shackles of mental and physical bondage. The day begins with a NAT TURNER WAR TRAIL TOUR led by Elder Khalifah, followed by lunch, cultural drumming, dance, libations, incense, prayer and meditation - all offered up as we merge with the energy of nature and our Ancestors. A lecture by Dr. Umar Ifatunde Johnson. Come join us! The Ancestors will be pleased... Tickets are $40 for Adults and includes: Nat Turner War Trail Tour, Lecture and Lunch at the Nat Turner Library. $20 for Teens (13-19), FREE for children 12 and under. This year's theme is: "Celebrating 400 Years of Freedom Fighter's Resistance: 1619-2019." Thank you for your support of this historic monument dedicated to our Ancestors who gave their lives for our freedom. ASE!
