AFRICATOWN C.H.E.S.S. Community Meeting Recap for 6/26/2023
As C.H.E.S.S. continues its mission to educate the community, we asked Mobile County Commissioner from District 1 Merceria Ludgood to attend CHESS’s meeting to talk about the Grand Opening of The Africatown Heritage House Museum, the most anticipated opening of any museum in America in 2023 according to The National Geographic Magazine. Ms. Ludgood is often referred to as our “Guardian Angle” by Africatown residents as she is beloved by the community. The Heritage House was her idea as she is leading the way to the establishment of Africatown as a Cultural Heritage Tourism Destination. The Heritage House is only one of the many things she has planned for Africatown. Ms. Ludgood seems to understand that Africatown is “The Hook” for new and sustainable tourism for the city of Mobile, the state of Alabama and the entire Gulf Coast Region.
