SEPTEMBER 22, 2021: LOOKING AT CRITICAL RACE THEORY.

APRIL 28, 2021: RESEARCHING OUR HISTORY. The Black presence in our communities has gone unrecognized for too long. We learned about how to study and understand our true racial histories--and how to use what we learn to make our communities better--from Joyce Sharrock Cole, Ossining Village Historian; Lynda Jones, vice president of Historic Hudson Valley; and Sarah Cox, chair of the Commemorating Enslaved Africans in Irvington Committee.
