Weeksville Heritage Center

Weeksville Heritage Center Weeksville Heritage Center (WHC) is an historic house museum. We celebrate the history of Weeksville, a free and intentional African American community founded in 1838 in Brooklyn.
(66)

Weeksville is as dynamic as it was when its founders created it. Weeksville Heritage Center is a multi-dimensional museum that celebrates the history of Weeksville, one of the first free African American communities in the country, established in 1838. Located in Central Brooklyn, the mission of Weeksville Heritage Center is to document, preserve and interpret the history of free African, Caribbean, and African American communities in Weeksville, Brooklyn, and beyond to create and inspire innovative, contemporary uses of history through research, education, the arts, and civic engagement. Drawing inspiration from the history of the community, WHC is known for the guided tours of its Hunterfly Road historic homes, public programs such as the Garden Party Concert Series, Brilliant Corners Jazz Concert, Farmers Market, Emancipation Day Celebrations, Vaudeville Family Day, ongoing oral history projects, and so much more. Walk in tours of the historic houses are Tuesday-Friday at 3:00 PM. Our public programming season begins in May/June with our annual jazz concert and weekend farmers market, and culminates in July with musical performances every Saturday, along with film screenings and lecture series. Special events are announced throughout the year. To learn more visit us at www.weeksvillesociety.org.

There are 3 Days left until the start of Kwanzaa! Join #Weeksville on the 26th for our re-air of our Kwanzaa Fest 2020!

As winter approaches along with the threat of more snow, NYC reminds seniors and the disabled that assistance with snow removal is available.

In the event of a snowstorm of 6 inches or more, eligible New Yorkers within designated areas across the City may receive assistance to remove snow from the sidewalk outside of a homeowner’s residence.

To be eligible, you must own a home within select areas and fall under one of these two categories:

A homeowner who is 60 years of age and older
A homeowner who has a disability
Snow shoveling assistance is limited only to the sidewalk outside of the residence. Shoveling assistance does not include clearing access to automobiles and driveways.

Please note, this service is based on availability of staff and volunteers and does not guarantee snow shoveling assistance. If determined eligible, you will be notified directly by a contractor ahead of the snow shoveling service.

Call 311 for assistance by phone.

To Whom It May Concern: We are a team affiliated with the New York City College of Technology and the Magnolia Initiative that is studying the effects of heat waves and the urban heat island effect in Bedford-Stuyvesant. We hope to better understand which specific areas within New York City, and particularly in the neighborhood of Bedford-Stuyvesant, are most affected by high temperatures. We have crafted a community survey about heat wave experiences that can be completed in less than 10 minutes. As a valued Bedford-Stuyvesant community member, we believe that you should be invited to participate in this survey. By completing this survey, you are helping us improve our understanding of heat wave impacts and experiences within these communities, and we hope that our research can help improve community response to heat wave preparedness, recovery, and resilience in addition to science education and engagement. We would greatly appreciate you taking the time to complete the survey, for which the link is included below: https://bit.ly/UHIE_BedStuy_Survey Disclaimer: When completing this survey, please provide information that is true and correct to the best of your knowledge and belief. If you have any questions or concerns regarding this survey, please contact us at [email protected]. Thank you so much, and we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Enjoy - Amid the rundown buildings and deteriorating streets of Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant section, young children under Project Weeksville are "Digging for Black Pride," and coming up with artifacts which link them to their 19th century ancestors. Black Journal focuses on this project in the second show of the 1971-72 season. Under Project Weeksville, black children are learning of early Bedford-Stuyvesant residents who held off white raiders during the Irish Draft Riots of 1863.

I discovered this site of living history several years ago - a physical community, a village of homes where our African ancestors, formerly enslaved, resided. I was dumbfounded; I had NO knowledge of its existence (I'm not from New York, if that even matters; I'd bet most NY'ers don't know either). This site is LIVING HISTORY - no, OURstory - WE must value, protect & preserve it! Ase.
