Family Programs: Schenectady and the Great Migration
March 15, 2017 –
In the first half of the 20th Century, 1.6 million African-Americans moved from the South up to cities like Schenectady in search of a better life. Take a guided walking tour through Schenectady’s historic Stockade District before exploring primary source documents from the Schenectady County Historical Society’s collection to gain a better understanding of what life was like for a new resident of Schenectady.
Can't attend on the 15th? The same program will also be offered on March 18th at 10:30 am.
Schenectady County Historical Society's family programs are open to students 2nd grade and up. Parents or chaperones are asked to stay with their student through the duration of the program.
The cost is $5.00 per student, and pre-registration is required. To register, visit our website schenectadyhistorical.org/families. For more information, contact our Educator Jenna Peterson Riley at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (518) 887-5073.
