SAVANNAH, GA – March 13, 2023 – Savannah African Art Museum is slated to host a “Honoring Women Trailblazers” workshop for Women’s History Month, featuring Connie Williams on Saturday, March 25 from 11 a.m. – 1 p.m. on the second floor of the Terracotta Gallery, located at 201 East 37th Street in Savannah.

This workshop will be facilitated by a trailblazer in our community, Connie Williams, who is a docent at the museum, entrepreneur, and Chief in the village of Kpanvo (Northern Region of Tamale, Ghana).
