Recently celebrating its 50th Anniversary, The Giddens' Do-Drop Inn, a restaurant and dance hall built in 1967 by Lloyd Henry Giddens, is one of the oldest continually owned and operated African-American businesses on Virginia's Eastern Shore. Thanks to a grant from the Virginia Foundation for the Humanities, WHRO has connected with the people of Weirwood and the surrounding communities for the opportunity to preserve their memories of an important cultural landmark and safe gathering place for African American’s on the Eastern Shore. From its beginnings during the Civil Rights Movement, the patrons of the Do-Drop have witnessed momentous historical events over their lifetimes, and the Do-Drop has come to represent a pillar of the community for many reasons. The live broadcast of Another View on Friday, September 21 from the Eastern Shore’s Barrier Island Center seeks to highlight the people and the stories of the Do-Drop Inn.
If you would like to be part of the audience for the live show, please arrive no later than 11:00 a.m.
The event is free, registration is required as seating is limited. Register now.
