Let the story be told that our forefathers were so bold

That great men of slaves walked this road to be sold

If not for their strength and humble souls

American wouldn't be worth gold

God Bless America!

Erected in 1927, as a pre-planned and private African American summer resort community, Cedar Haven was reserved for African Americans because African Americans were not welcome at nearby beaches. Full of life and memory, and ceding ground as the sea level rises; African American beaches are now vanished relics of an uncomfortable past. It is unfortunate that our historically Black beaches and waterfront communities, like Cedar Haven, have been taken away, just like everything else!

For nearly 50 years, Black beaches were safe havens for African-American families looking for a summer escape.   With rising water and vanishing land; please contact us if you would like to join us in our mission--- to safeguard our most valuable resources, water and land, from coastal flooding and erosion
