2018 will be the third year for the Black History Festival. This year's theme is "Black Brilliance". The festival will look to showcase performers and businesses from around the area as well as raise funds for the Carlisle Hope Station. This will help us continue the work that was started by Jim. The Jim Washington Station of Hope Awarded will be awarded. Past recipients are Jim Washington & Ms. Ruth Hodge. Food and drink will be available.
