African heritage celebrated in Albany

September 6, 2003

Albany - The African Heritage Festival is underway at the State Farmers market in Albany.

Dancers, painters and authors demonstrate African culture with their talents.

Ceola Ross is originally from Dawson, and now makes a living in Atlanta selling her artwork. She says she came to South Georgia to celebrate her Southern roots, and to share her art.

The festival is sponsored by African Black heritage and ends Sunday night at six. Dance troops, music, food, and rock climbing are some of the events that are taking place at the festival.
