Join urban anthropologist and RCC faculty member Dr. Sherrill D. Wilson during Black History Month for a lecture on the African presence in the north, both enslaved and free, a subject long neglected but more recently generating strong interest among educators and history buffs. This talk begins in the early colonial Dutch occupation of New Amsterdam and extends through the early America period, highlighting the achievements, struggles and contributions of African descendants in the lower Hudson Valley region.
