Join us for a fascinating discussion & film screening about the famed Idlewild resort community, as we examine its historical importance. Idlewild was a retreat for African American elite and a safe and sophisticated place for African Americans who were limited with many opportunities due to segregation. Known as, “The Black Eden”, it was operational until the late 1960s.
