Our future depends on healthy, vibrant communities and opportunities for our friends and neighbors to fulfill their potential. To that end, Black Hills Power makes donations for civic, cultural, social and charitable purposes.
“You Ain’t Heard Nothing Yet” will focus on how Deadwood’s visionary leadership in the 1920s left the city with a lasting legacy of historic preservation and economic development.
The project is comprised of two main components. The first involves creating exhibits rich with artifacts and historical documents detailing many of the challenges city leaders tackled to ensure Deadwood’s continued economic success. The second component includes a series of live performances featuring period art, literature, fashion, music and current events taking place across the nation.
With this project, the audience will become immersed in the culture of the 1920s, thereby giving them a greater understanding and appreciation of how the visionary ideas, innovative problem solving skills and tenacity of the city’s leaders created a Deadwood generations of people have come to enjoy.
