Come explore the world of DuBose Heyward's 1925 groundbreaking novel Porgy—the inspiration for the first great American opera, Porgy and Bess, by George Gershwin and Heyward—in A Journey Along Catfish Row, the Story of Porgy and Bess from the Preservation Society of Charleston. Walk along streets and discover "Catfish Row," Heyward's home nearby, and visit his final resting place. Learn about the inspiration for the novel, the Gullah culture of enslaved Africans and their descendants, and events which brought Dubose Heyward and George Gershwin together. Immerse yourself in a time when the city experienced a cultural rebirth, known as the Charleston Renaissance.
