Black Families in Pleasant Valley
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Beginning in the mid-1700s Pleasant Valley in northwestern Hopewell Township has been the home to rural farm families. A variety of ethnic groups have provided families and individuals who have been farm owners or renters, agricultural laborers and domestic help, and skilled service providers. One such group has been the Black men and women who contributed to the agricultural history of Pleasant Valley and, thereby, Hopewell Township. Larry Kidder, renowned local historian, will address the experiences of Black Americans from the time of slavery into the 20th century, and how their story contributes to a fuller understanding of changes in our society as addition to the changes in New Jersey agriculture. Co-sponsored with the Hopewell Valley Historical Society.
