Carlottra Guyton and friends hosted the Annual Weaving the Web of our history event in her historic Springfield home last weekend in honor
of Black History Month. Held customarily the last Saturday of February, the event culminates the month of reflection of African-American history.
Invited guests are asked to bring an artifact or memento from their family’s history in addition to a covered dish to share in a potluck feast.
“This started as just a notion and has grown and grown over the years”, said Guyton. Joined by close friends in hosting the event in guiding the evening along, everyone takes with them a piece of someone else’s life – thus weaving the fabric of history.
“It is important that we share these stories with our children and remind them of their rich heritage, said Guyton. “I’m, ready to take ‘Each One Teach One to a new level.”
