Carter G. Woodson created Negro History week in 1926 to elevate a period of celebration. According to Jeff Johnson, “The caveat to that was it required us to actually study enough history outside of the celebration to continuously share during it. ” Well here at Historic Westside News, we make a concrted effort to do just that.
That’s why we are hostikng the Black History Scavenger Hunt on March 21, 2021, at 1:00PM.
Meet at the starting point (Apex Museum Parking Lot ). Guided from any smart phone, teams make their way among well known and overlooked Black history, solving clues and completing challenges while learning local history. Once you’ve found the object, you’ll send a photo in to score points.
Choose from three different levels:
- Level 1: Kid-friendly riddles and perfect for families (1-2 hours)
- Level 2: Challenging, but not impossible to solve. (2-3 hours)
- Level 3: Try it if you dare (4 hours)
The goal of the scavenger hunt is to find all the items, earn your way to the top of the leaderboard, and more importantly, to have fun with family and friends. The first team to complete all of the tasks or with the most points at each level wins a prize!
Don’t worry, you won’t be alone. You’ll have a remote guide that will be communicating with you during your game if you need help or have a question. They will also encourage you and give hints and tips for success!
Please wear a mask and maintain social distancing protocols! All proceeds will benefit the Historic Westside Legacy Keepers!
