The ceremony will be held Friday, February 22, to unveil one of four new historical markers in the White Bluff and Coffee Bluff area. It will begin at 10:15 a.m. at the Crusader Center, 81 Coffee Bluff Villa Road, and is being celebrated as part of the Savannah Black Heritage Festival- presented by Savannah State University and the City of Savannah.

The markers identify four public waterways that were used by freed slaves during the nineteenth century. They settled in the area after leaving plantations on the nearby St. Catherine’s, Sapelo and Ossabaw islands.
