Memories of Black Schenectady
February 24 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
A Virtual Celebration for Black History Month. Watch live at facebook.com/schenectadyhistorical. A Facebook account is not required to watch. Hosted by the Schenectady African American Historical Records Project.
Join us for a conversation with Miki Conn, Walter Simpkins, and Adonis Richards about their lives and memories as Black Schenectadians. This event is part of the Schenectady African American Historical Records Project, a public history project focused on preserving the heritage and historical records of African Americans in Schenectady. We’re launching a community survey which will ask a range of questions that we hope will help expand the community’s knowledge of the history of Black people in Schenectady and illuminate the historical records preserved within the community. We invite you to attend our virtual conversation and learn more about the project, survey, and community memories. Your participation will be an important part of developing the history, legacy and memory of the Black community in Schenectady.
