Overcoming challenges and struggles, bigotry and racism The marks of slavery in his family history still burns bright
Last week we announced a new Greenburgh town initiative: highlighting the struggles and challenges the African community has had during the last two centuries. Councilman Ken Jones kicked off the series with a story about his aunt, Anna Bernard, a Parkway Gardens resident who was the first African American to be admitted to the NY Bar. Today, we continue with a fascinating report by Bishop Dr. Wilbert G Preston. "The marks of slavery still burns bright." Bishop Dr. Wilbert G. Preston has been the Pastor of Christ Temple and has chaired the Greenburgh Housing Authority.
We will continue to share stories of Greenburgh residents. How did families overcome the challenges of racism and bigotry? This initiative is being coordinated by Town Clerk Judith Beville and myself. E mail firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com with your stories.
