MACON, Ga. — Maconites celebrated Black History Month by experiencing the lives of notable figures in African-American history at the Tubman Museum.
The Tubman 'Living Legends' Tour began at noon Saturday. It featured volunteers acting as as Rosa Parks, Maya Angelou and, of course, Harriet Tubman. Volunteers gave speeches, sang and told stories as their character.
The purpose of the event was to give the audience an educational, face-to-face experience with these figures.
Organizers say the event was also meant to give the community a taste of how rich African-American culture truly is.
