Event FEB 2 & 3, 2018
The Okefenokee Heritage Center is proud to partner with Purlie Productions, the Black Heritage Committee, and Antioch First African to present “God’s Trombones.”
“God’s Trombones” is a collection of 7 sermons written to bring Christianity to the New World in the 1700s, specifically bringing the Word to the African slaves. This dramatic presentation at Historic Antioch Church on Knight Avenue will bring together 7 local pastors and our community for a wonderful performance.
