Last Friday, our students, elected representatives and leaders joined together in a rally to demand that @pfizerinc keep its commitment to our Brooklyn community. We marched; we listened to the beautiful music of our @bwcmiddle Drum Line and Orchestra, and we were inspired by the words of Brooklyn Borough President Antonio Reynoso, Assembly Member Maritza Davila, and Evelyn Cruz, Representative for Congresswoman Nydia Velázquez. @pfizerinc, @beginwchildren we believe in giving everyone a seat at the table, everyone having a voice, and everyone working together towards positive change.

This week, our Black History Month learning opportunity is the Weeksville Heritage Center in Brooklyn. A historic site and cultural center dedicated to preserving the remnants of a thriving village established by Black New Yorkers after the state abolished slavery in 1827. Weeksville Heritage Center uses education, arts and a social justice lens to preserve, document and inspire engagement with the history of Weeksville, one of the largest free Black communities in pre-Civil War America, and the Historic Hunterfly Road Houses.

Check out their programming and follow them on Instagram @weeksvilleheritagecenter

Did you know that during the first half of the 19th century, what is now Central Park near West 85th Street, was home to Seneca Village—a community of predominantly African-Americans, many of whom owned property.
