In partnership with Eastville Community Historical Society (ECHS), Sylvester Manor presents the 7th Annual Black History Month Celebration. This year’s program will feature a conversation with Lauren Brincat, Curator at Preservation Long Island, and Donnamarie Barnes, Curator at Sylvester Manor. Moderated by Dr. Georgette Grier-Key, Executive Director Eastville Community Historical Society, the program will explore the connections between the families of Sylvester Manor and Joseph Lloyd Manor in Huntington, NY. The two locations were connected through Tammero and Oyou of Sylvester Manor, whose grandson, Jupiter Hammon of Joseph Lloyd Manor, was the first published African American poet.
