In partnership with Eastville Community Historical Society (ECHS), Sylvester Manor presents the 6th Annual Black History Month Celebration. This year’s program will present how various pieces make up an historic story and the ways those stories are uncovered through social sciences, humanities, archaeology, oral history and documentation. We will explore methods and practices for sharing and presenting those stories with the public. Our speakers’ backgrounds in archaeology, anthropology, museum and historic interpretation will highlight various ways in which institutions and communities are uncovering the history of the Enslaved where documentation and specific records are unable to provide us with the story. We will examine how these methods are aiding in the work being done at Sylvester Manor, Eastville Community Historical Society and elsewhere on the East End of Long Island. Reception to follow.

2:00-3:30 pm  Panel discussions and presentations
3:30-4:00 pm  Reception (light appetizers and cash bar)
