At the Black Expo at Waynesbrough Historical Village, chess expert Dock Whitley of Fayetteville gives Tonenetta McKnabb a lesson.

At the Olde Waynesborough historic village, there was a Black Expo, a day of family fun and with gospel singing, games and tours of the village's old buildings.

Royal Rangers, boys from Wayne County churches, floated the Neuse River on canoes.

And there was more -- so much that all of it couldn't be photographed -- something for everybody.
