Georgia Archives Month says
The Flat Rock Archives will host its Heritage Day and Jazz Festival on October 24, 2015, as a celebration of the local history, music, food, and culture within the Flat Rock community. This will be an all-day affair, from nine o'clock a.m. to ten o'clock p.m. Community members of Flat Rock will have the opportunity to participate in a morning and afternoon flea market where local vendors will sell handmade jewelry, African American art, clothes, paintings, Flat Rock Archive souvenirs, and food grown at the Archives' community garden to help raise money for the Archives. Johnny Waits, the director of the Flat Rock Archives, will provide continual tours of the Archives to promote the archival collections to members both within and outside the Flat Rock community. JoyEllen Freeman, the intern at Flat Rock Archives, will host an open house inside of the Archives that will highlight treasures from the collection, particularly focusing on items that demonstrate the Georgia Archives Month "Snapshots from the South" theme. Some of these items will include photos and artifacts from the original Flat Rock Methodist Church established by former slaves in the late nineteenth century, photos of the first Flat Rock Methodist Church Board of Trustees in the early twentieth century, service programs from current churches in the Flat Rock community, oversize maps, and artifacts from the 1917 home of legendary Flat Rock community member, T.A. Bryant, Sr. The day will end with an evening jazz festival featuring John H. Porter and his band and a delicious dinner from the grill of Darrin Christian.
