For more than 200 years, African Americans in the North have fought for political power, economic freedom and voting rights by buying land, building homes, establishing churches, schools and civic organizations.

Lawnside New Jersey, is a powerful example of this vision as New Jersey's first incorporated municipality governed by descendants of enslaved and free African Americans. Join us to learn about this vibrant community that still thrives despite the state's Jim Crow past and other challenges.
