Sylvester Manor Educational Farm, co-hosting with Eastville Community Historical Society, presents the 5th Annual Black History Month Celebration. This year’s program will explore the history of slavery on the East End of Long Island and the omission of that history from the founding narrative of the United States.

The program will consist of visual presentations and a panel of speakers involved in projects to bring the stories, histories, and lives of the early enslaved African people who lived, worked, and died on the Eastern End of Long Island to light. Their names and facts of their lives can be found in documents and archives and by asking simple questions. How many slaves lived here? What did they do? Where did they go? Where are they buried? We can change the way our community and its archive keepers think about the past. Reception to follow.

Our expert panelists include:
Dr. Georgette Grier-Key: Executive Director/Curator of Eastville Community Historical Society, Sag Harbor
Aileen Novick: Site Administrator /Project Manager; Hempsted Houses of Connecticut Landmarks, Connecticut
David Rattray: Owner/Editor of The East Hampton Star Newspaper and Director of the East Hampton Plain Sight Project, East Hampton
Donnamarie Barnes: Curator/ archivist Sylvester Manor Educational Farm, Shelter Island
