Join Village of Ossining historian Joyce Cole for an engaging look at the stories of Black residents in this Westchester County (NY) town.
Ossining's Black community often overlooked because of Sing Sing Prison's presence. This month we take a look at this rich history.
Who was Reverend Henry Duers, the formerly enslaved community leader? What's the story of Natalie Jackson and her mother Carrie Hoffman, the prison's only Black matrons? What does the story of Hunter Street tell us about people employed by the prison nearby?
