Saturday 17 October 2020 Black History Month Art Project Geeâ€™s Bend is an area of Alabama that started as a major cotton plantation. Later, freed slaves settled in the area. They remained through the Great Depression and stayed even when a new dam on the Alabama River flooded much of the farmland. Tucked in a crook in the river, Gee's Bend was cut off from most everywhere else and remained isolated when ferry service to the area was discontinued.
