2018 Heritage Weekend Events
June 22-24, 2018

Please join the Booker T. Washington High School Foundation for its 44th Annual Heritage Weekend, June 22-24, 2018, in Columbia, South Carolina. We have planned events to honor and highlight the magnificent history of Columbia’s first Black high school, its illustrious Alumni and its impact yet resonating on the Capital city’s community and our nation. At the centerpiece of our celebration is the Class of 1943 as we feature these living legacies on their 75th Class Reunion. New to the weekend are the State of the Foundation Symposium where we will update our supporters on the organization’s status and vision and the Meeting of the Millennium Society, the next generation of BTW legacies. We will present the annual Heritage Banquet and BTW Scholars, induct new Millennium Society Members (Click Here to Nominate New Members), capture Class Photos (click here to see Photo Schedule), host a mini-picnic, and pay tribute through the renowned John W. Work Chorus performance.

How can you attend?
