May Day in Gee’s Bend

The community of Boykin in Wilcox County is better known to the world as Gee’s Bend and is world- renowned for the fabulous quilts that local women have been making for generations. The annual May Day celebration in Boykin serves as a huge homecoming for people with roots in the Bend. We will meet Gee’s Benders as they come from all over the United States to gather on the old school grounds, visit relatives, eat great food and participate in a ritual softball game.
