African American Experiences at Solitude

Solitude hosts "African American Experiences at Solitude through Soul Food, Gospel Music, and Cabin Dedication."  This all-day event is part of the Crooked Road's Mountains of Music Homecoming and features an informal, proposed dedication of the "outbuilding" as "The Fraction Family Cabin" in recognition of one of the families whose names we know who lived as enslaved persons at Solitude from about 1843 to 1865.  

Soul food, gospel music by local church choirs, reminiscences of local African American community life, revised building tours, and a dedication of the cabin are augmented by weaver and spinner, blacksmith, and corn shuck doll/herbal remedies demonstrators. Artifacts from the African American community of Wake Forest and Africa's Yoruba will also be present.  Ms. Hobbs, who is a direct descendant of Thomas Fraction, who was enslaved at Solitude, will assist in dedicating the building. All free, and free parking available in the Wright Lot nearby.
