Join us for a lively performance with the nationally acclaimed McIntosh County Shouters. It was widely believed that the ring shout had ceased to be practiced in African American communities throughout the South. It wasn’t until 1980 that folklorists discovered the ring shout was still alive and practiced in Bolden/Briar Patch. This specific community had continued teaching children about the ring shout for over 300 years. As the only authentic practitioners of the historic ring shout, they are invited to perform at festivals around the country. The McIntosh County Shouters have received the Governor’s Award in the Humanities in Georgia and have performed at the John F. Kennedy Center and Library of Congress, and most recently at the opening ceremonies for the National Museum of African American History and Culture in Washington, D.C.
