Saturday marked a double celebration of African-American culture in Camden with the opening of the African American Cultural Center and the inaugural edition of the “Soulicious” festival on the grounds of the Price House. Inside the cultural center, hundreds of people got to see pictures, documents and baseball cards relating to Camden native Larry Doby, the second African-American to enter major league baseball by becoming the first black member of an American League team. Many of those same people then spent time outside enjoying food cooked by the Camden-Kershaw County chapter of the NAACP, face painting, games, music and more.
