John Chavis, born around 1763 in Virginia, was a prominent free black preacher and educator in and around the Raleigh area from 1810 onwards. Chavis was raised in Virginia and had an extensive education for the time period, likely the best education of any African American of his day in North Carolina. He is best known for his classical teaching in Raleigh, educating children of all races and from all different backgrounds. In 1832 free blacks lost many of their rights in North Carolina, and Chavis lost his freedom to preach and to teach. He died in 1838, having lived and worked as a respected member of society amongst all races of people. Chavis is considered by many historians to be the first free black to demonstrate to white slaveowners the abilities of blacks in formal education.
It’s Salty, Roasted, Plain, Green and Boiled. It’s also the STAR of our show, better known to us as Bladen County’s finest PEANUTS. We celebrate the Peanut the third Saturday of September each year. This year’s date is September 20th, 2014. The Festival is held in Dublin, N.C, also known as the Peanut Capital of the South. It is the home of Houston’s Peanuts which is known, and whose peanuts are shipped, world wide.
Our festival kicks off at 10 AM with a Parade. When the parade ends, a day to be remembered begins. We will have the Classic Cruisers Car Show, Craft and Food Vendors, Bar-B-Que plate sale, Kiddie and Women’s Tractor Pull, Corn Hole Tournament, Rides for the entire family, Games for the Kids, Our Own Secret Recipe Hot Dogs, Sausage Dogs and Steak and Chicken Fajitas.
