Spirit of Our Ancestors Festival

Mobile County Training School 800 Whitley St., Mobile

The Clotilda Descendants Association will present the fourth annual Spirit of Our Ancestors Festival on February 12.
This year’s event will be highlighted by the stories of slave ship Clotilda and Africatown being brought to life in a short stage performance “An Ocean in My Bones” developed by playwright and award-winning director Terrence Spivey.
The play will be presented at historic Mobile County Training School, located at 800 Whitley St., in Africatown. The school was founded by descendants of Clotilda in 1880 and the play is a precursor to the full-length stage play debuting in Mobile, February 2024.
