When Africans were brought to America, they adopted some European traditions while maintaining many of their original customs.
This is evident in various funeral and mourning rituals used today.
Elaine Nichols, a curator at the S.C. State Museum, gave a presentation about African American homegoing customs at the Medford Library at the University of South Carolina at Lancaster on Friday. Nichols' lecture was based on an exhibit called "The Last Mile of the Way," which is on display in the library.
