From Maplewood Township:
It is said that knowing our past can help us to navigate the present and plan for the future. So, we are fortunate to have found Professor Graham Russell Gao Hodges, author and professor of history, Africana and Latin American Studies at Colgate University, to share historical accounts from his recent book, BLACK new jersey: 1664 to the Present documenting how African Americans in New Jersey fought for their freedom during slavery to build a Black middle class and continue to battle against racial discrimination today. The event is FREE and open to the public. Books will also be available for signing and purchase.
A Maplewood Black History event sponsored by the South Orange/Maplewood Community Coalition on Race.
