Legacy Day

Legacy Day – a festival that celebrates the rich cultural heritage of African Americans in Kent County – has occurred each August for the past eight years. It is offered free of charge to the public, thanks to the sponsorships of individuals and organizations.

Legacy Day 2022 honors Kent County’s African American Veterans. In addition to the exhibition at the Bordley Building of the Historical Society, a wide range of programs and exhibits will be offered over Legacy Day Weekend.

Legacy Day is produced by Sumner Hall with the Historical Society of Kent County
