African American Cemeteries in New Jersey
February 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
History is made everyday by ordinary people, much of which relates to our own family history. The story of our families is unique and well-worth preserving. One way we try to preserve that history and the memories of our loved ones are through cemeteries. As we continue to celebrate Black History Month, Cherekana Feliciano, from the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical, will touch on this very personal aspect of history by examining African American cemeteries in New Jersey. She will provide an overview of the history of these cemeteries in New Jersey, their current state and what the future may hold for them, including examining what role/responsibilities the general public and the African American community at large has in ensuring their upkeep and survival.
