Thank you so much for your support of the Weeksville Heritage Center in 2017!

With your participation in the last year, programs such as The Legacy Project, which activates our archives through a contemporary lens; Weeksville Weekends, which brings free weekend family programming to the community; and, of course, the Historic Hunterfly Road House Tours have amplified the voices of Central Brooklyn and of the African Diaspora. These programs allowed us to strengthen our legacy and showcase the brilliance of our tenacious community. You have been a part of these triumphs.

We need your support now more than ever as the public calls for a preservation of our illustrious culture and history. Weeksville is a beacon of triumph for the Black community in New York City and beyond. A gift from you at this time would be transformative as we look to the future. We are grateful for your commitment to this institution and sincerely appreciate all that you do to help Weeksville thrive.

Help us get to 2018 stronger than ever.

Grab it. Grab this land! Take it, hold it, my brothers, make it, my brothers, shake it, squeeze it, turn it, twist it, beat it, kick it, kiss it, whip it, stomp it, dig it, plow it, seed it, reap it, rent it, buy it, sell it, own it, build it, multiply it, and pass it on. 

- Toni Morrison, Song of Solomon (1977)
