Spring 2021:

Join us for a virtual Breakfast Talk on the abolitionist history of downtown Brooklyn!  

The recent landmarking of 227 Duffield Street is a signal not only of the significance of this one building but of the importance of all of Downtown Brooklyn in the history of the Abolitionist movement in the 1850s and 1860s, a location of the Suffragists in the 1890s, and a locale of African American cultural ferment during that time and further into the twentieth century. The speakers will discuss the struggle to preserve 227 Duffield Street and place that struggle into a wider context of the history of African Americans in Downtown Brooklyn.
