Today: History of African American experience in NJ

Posted

This article, from the New York Times October 1, 1882, is just one of the many historic documents we'll look at to understand the African American experience in New Jersey through the eyes of first- and second-hand accounts from different periods in American history. Tours begin at 1, 2, and 3 pm at the Crane House and Historic YWCA, 110 Orange Road, Montclair. Reservations are not required.

A Place to Become: Montclair through the Eyes of the Glenridge Avenue YWCA Women (1920-1965), a 55-minute documentary that tells the stories of the eight women who attended the YWCA during the first half of the 20th century, will be playing continuously in the lower level of the museum.

Admission is $6/adult; $5/student/senior with ID; $4/child; under 2 free. Members of the Montclair History Center and furloughed Federal employees are also free!

This program will be held again on February 17.
