The Jupiter Hammon Project:
Virtual Roundtables Announced

The painful effects of racial bias and the long legacy of slavery are now on full display in our country. Honest communication about race and the legacy of slavery in America is necessary to initiate change and foster a more equitable society. Through the Jupiter Hammon project, Preservation Long Island encourages people to enter into dialogue with those around them, to examine their own biases, and work towards true equality in words and in practice.
