This is a celebration for all members of the family and there will also be a Kids Dash at 9:00 am for children 8 & under who will receive a medal for participating.
The mission of the Friends of Oberlin Village is to preserve, protect, and honor the establishment of Oberlin Village through community awareness, outreach, and education. Friends of Oberlin Village is a non-profit volunteer-run 501(c)(3) organization honoring Oberlin Village, the only surviving freedman’s village in North Carolina that grew out of a Free Black settlement during Reconstruction. Our love of history, education, and humanity has enabled our humble and steadfast group to elevate the preservation, recognition, and education of Oberlin Village locally and nationally.
