Vibrant Health Association

Before Slavery is a project of the Vibrant Health Association


The mission of the Vibrant Health Association is to educate African-Americans that the results of slavery impact the health of this population, causing disproportionately higher rates of debilitating and life-threatening disease. It is also to counter those effects with foundational self-knowledge that is emotionally grounding, and to offer active, stress-reducing programs.

What's New?

Events that make the ancient history of African Americans come to LIFE! Come to our festivals, performances and programs to learn in an interactive, immersive and EXCITING way!

The Before Slavery Experience is coming to Atlanta, GA in 2025. It is a time travel experience to remember.
