Event Description

Weeksville Heritage Center, Brooklyn’s largest African-American cultural institution, is a multidisciplinary museum dedicated to preserving the history of the 19th century African American community of Weeksville, Brooklyn – one of America’s first free black communities.  Using a contemporary lens, we activate this unique history through the presentation of innovative, vanguard and experimental programs.  Weeksville advances its mission through history, preservation, visual and performing arts, ecology and the built environment.
