Welcome to Weeksville
Weeksville is one of America's first free black communities during the 19th century. It's interesting that I never knew it existed, growing up not even a mile away. I first heard about it at a DAR meeting about 10 years . Going to predominantly white schools, I was not taught about the historical black moments that happened in NYC. I appreciated this tour, and it was a birthday treat to my mom (although she had been before). Go to https://www.weeksvillesociety.org to learn more.
