NEXT WEDNESDAY AT 6PM ET, join us for week four of our Fall 2021 Talking About Race Matters: Join the Conversation lecture series! We will be live on Zoom at 6pm for a discussion with Dr. Christopher Matthews titled, "'A Long Time Coming': The Archaeology and History of the Native and African American Community in Setauket, NY."

This presentation will discuss recent archaeology and community-based research focused on the mixed-heritage Native American and African American community in Setauket, on Long Island, NY. The talk will explore this history of this community, highlighting their long struggle to persist despite consistent and intensifying racism and displacement. New research involving archaeology, oral history, and archival research challenge existing historical narratives that predominate in the region and establishes a new understanding of this place as historically diverse and unique. This work draws from Prof. Matthews' new book A Struggle for Heritage: Archaeology and Civil Rights in a Long Island Community.
