The Southern African American Heritage Center is located in the historic “black business district” in Cheraw, SC. The Heritage Center is dedicated to collecting, documenting and preserving the contributions of African Americans from Chesterfield County. Visitors will find documents and artifacts on display that offer an insight into local history and culture for African Americans from the 1800s to the mid 1900s. Features of the center’s collection include, Dizzy Gillespie, Coulter Memorial Academy, Long High School, Civil Rights documents, church history and photographs of Horace King. We offer Heritage Walking Tours within the town limits highlighting African American landmarks such as homes, businesses and churches. We provide Educational Tours for public, private and home school students, daycares and youth groups and offer several programs to get the youth energized about learning African American History. A gift shop is available offering toys, gourmet foods, jewelry, CDs, books, African instruments and many more wonderful gifts.
