Celebrate the Rich Heritage of Idlewild

From 1912 through the mid 1960s, Idlewild was an active year round community and was visited by well known African American professionals and entertainers from all over the country. It was one of the few resorts in the nation where African Americans were allowed to vacation and purchase property before discrimination was outlawed with the Civil Rights Act of 1964.

Founded in 1912, Idlewild attracted the African American middle class largely composed of professional and small business owners including well known national figures like NAACP co-founder W.E.B. DuBois and self made millionaire, cosmetic entrepreneur Madam C.J. Walker and many more. As time went on it also became known as an entertainment mecca, attracting the most famous musicians, singers and dancers of the era including Louis Armstrong, Della Reese, Sarah Vaughan, The Four Tops and more.

Live at Idlewild reignites the inspiring history of Idlewild and provides opportunities to learn more about the past, present and possibilities of our community.
