This Saturday, August 24, 2019, 4:00pm to 7:00pm, “People Not Property,” an interactive documentary researched and created by Michael Lord, member, Board of Trustees, Historic Hudson Valley, will be presented at the Philipsburg Manor, Tarrytown-Sleepy Hollow.  Commemorating 400 years of African American presence in the United States including the early contributions of African Americans to the geographical area that became the Town of Greenburgh, the documentary, lecture and Q&A, promises to be an impressive and unforgettable history lesson for all.  Sponsored by “The 400 Years Project: A County-Wide Collaborative,” an initiative founded and coordinated by Judith A. Beville, Greenburgh Town Clerk, in collaboration with leaders from the Westchester Library System, the Ethical Culture Society, Historic Hudson Valley, Westchester County Archives, the Greenburgh African-American Historical Alliance and others, the August 24th program is designed to engage town residents of all different cultural backgrounds in an educational experience and dialogue about a crucial component of our town’s history.  “Our town is a cultural mosaic and we should hold similar educational events to highlight and commemorate all cultures represented in the Town of Greenburgh,” says Judith.   The Philipsburg Manor auditorium has limited seating.  If you plan to attend on 8/24, please email Judith  Beville at:  jbeville@greenburghny.com
