by Amber McDown

The Iota Rho Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority of Minden will be presenting its 39th Annual Heritage Festival on Saturday, March 25 at Webster Junior High School starting at 9 AM. 

This year’s theme is “The Black Experience: Her-story/His-story; A Celebration of Art & Culture.” The festival is open to all elementary through high school students, and there will be different categories such as art, dance, speech, and quiz bowl. This year’s theme is intended to “uplift our local community by celebrating excellence and stimulating effective culture.”

“We are thrilled to return to our in-person festival format as we honor Black history and the arts  with the youth in our community by showcasing their talents and knowledge,”  said Chapter President, Dr. Adrienne  Moore. “We look forward to  increasing cultural awareness in our community through participation and attendance in a fun and engaging environment. In the words of Michelle Obama, ‘History has shown us that courage can  be contagious; and hope can take on a life of its own.’ Join us in celebrating our great legacy of  courage and being the flame in the torch representing hope.”
