Bronx Black History: How Much Do You Know?

MP_CJ WALKER

Did you know jazz greats Miles Davis and Duke Ellington are buried at Woodlawn Cemetery?  Were you aware that many Civil Rights Movement demonstrations occurred in the Bronx?  Can you name which two Black businesswomen were among the most reliable patrons of the Harlem Renaissance?  Would you like to hear about African American pioneers in the environmental movement?

Explore the joy of lifelong learning by looking at neighborhood parks and landmarks with the founder of Bronx River Sankofa, Morgan Powell. The Bronx River Sankofa celebrates the Bronx River’s African American heritage with free talks and walking tours. Morgan has created a spring series and I am sure there is a PowerPoint Talk or Walking Tour that works for you. These all new interactive PowerPoint talks and walking tour are designed for all ages. The walking tour also includes discussion of the local flora, fauna and architecture:
