Bridging Histories, Celebrating Diversity

The Igbo Landing Foundation is committed to historical preservation and bridging the historical narratives of the Igbo people and the Gullah Geechee culture, while celebrating the diversity of the African diaspora.

Through our annual commemorative weekend in St. Simons Island, we provide a platform for educators, students and professionals from various institutions and organizations to engage in research, dialogue, and activities that promote a deeper appreciation of the shared history and contributions of our people to the global cultural tapestry.

Event Details:

  • Date: May 24 - 26, 2024
  • Location: Epworth by the Sea | St. Simons Island, GA.

Cultural Center & Museum

This site will serve as an international center telling the story of not only Igbo Landing, but connecting it to the larger story of the African Diaspora & Resistance.

Tours: Land & Boat

The land tours will provide a site visits throughout St. Simon’s Island to include the Harrington School, Fort Frederica, Union Baptist Church, and Igbo Landing.
