Three words. Reflect, reform and rejoice. They represent the history of African Americans as they marched from enslavement to freedom to contributors, according to Robert Louis Stevenson, retired Savannah State University professor.

“Since this trek has been long and arduous, what has been accomplished embodies reformation, that upon reflection is cause to rejoice!” he wrote.

So set the theme for the 32nd annual Savannah Black Heritage Festival, a virtual event from Feb. 5-21, found online at savannahblackheritagefestival.org. Some events can also be viewed on Facebook, YouTube and on a local television station.

The redesigned website allows for a virtual tour of African-American history in addition to experiencing the jazz, dance and hip hop ballet performances, along with other educational presentations.

Teddy Adams performing his jazz magic. Gospel singer Demetrius West. Sons of Mystro with their interpretation of reggae classics. Hiplet hip-hop ballerinas gliding across the stage. Music industry emerging stars singer-songwriter India Shawn and Koryn Hawthorn, a contemporary Christian music and gospel singer.

That’s part of the virtual entertainment. There will also be presentations in the form of panel discussions and the annual W.W. Law presentation by Telfair Museums.

Hiplet hip hop ballerinas will perform Feb. 21 as the closing premier act for the Savannah Black Heritage Festival. It is to be aired on WSAV.

New this year on Feb. 11 is a community forum entitled “The COVID Vaccine and You: What Black and Latino Communities Need to Know,” presented by the Savannah Morning News, Savannah Tribune, E-93 and Magic 103.9. The conversation will be an open discussion about the facts and myths of the COVID-19 vaccine, featuring local medical professionals and historians. The event is at 6 p.m. at St. Phillip AME Church, 613 Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. Capacity will be limited to comply with CDC recommendations and will be streamed on SavannahNow.com and facebook.com/savannahnow.
