GulfQuest sincerely thanks all of you who have shown interest in our February 9th event, Wade in the Water 2020: Healing, Reconciling, and Revitalizing AfricaTown.
Our initial audience projection for this event was around 200. Due to a greater promotional venture through our team and the article published by AL.com, we exceeded that estimate by 150 registrants in the very first weekend of advertisement for a total of 350.
As a result, we have closed the registration link on Eventbrite. We wish we could accommodate all who are interested in attending in person but that is not possible.
To ensure safety, parking, and overall enjoyment for all who have already registered and still consider those who did not have an opportunity to do so, GulfQuest is offering alternatives for the day of the event.
The first 175-200 unregistered-persons to arrive on Feb. 9th will be able to view the event via live stream in two different locations on our main floor.
Those who will not be able to view the event at our facility will still access to the live stream broadcast through the GulfQuest Facebook page.
The link for the live stream will be made available next week and those who tune in will still be able to comment and be a part of the Q&A session at the end of the panel discussion.
We also want to encourage everyone to participate in the following events that are related to Wade in the Water:
Clotilda Descendants Association’s Spirit of our Ancestors

Thank you all for your enthusiasm and understanding as we try to make this event and others like it a success for everyone.
