Center for African American History, Arts, and Culture added to Reconstruction Era Historic Network

Tuesday, November 8, 2022

The City of Aiken is proud to announce that the Center for African American History, Arts, and Culture was one of four new sites added to the National Park Service’s Reconstruction Era National Historic Network.

The Reconstruction Era (1861-1900) is one of the most fascinating and misunderstood periods in American History and includes stories of freedom, education, and self-determination. The national network connects sites across the country who provide education, interpretation, and research related to the period of Reconstruction.

Learn more about the Reconstruction Era in the October 21, 2022 news release from the National Park Service and at https://www.nps.gov/subjects/reconstruction/discover-the-network.htm.

More information about Aiken’s Center for African American History, Arts, and Culture is available at https://caahac.org or https://www.facebook.com/aikencaahac.
