The Sankofa Collaborative presents “Jim Crow in New Jersey- Policies, Regulations, and Practices Supporting Discrimination and Segregation in the Garden State” on Friday, July 19.

In June 2023, the Sankofa Collaborative kicked off a four-year series of workshops on the theme of “The Unfinished Revolution and the African American Experience from Slavery to Today,” intended to further the Sankofa Collaborative’s mission to build the capacity of individuals, groups, and organizations to learn about, present, and discuss the complex and difficult issues in the history and current experiences of African American citizens of New Jersey.

This year’s full day program will feature a panel on segregation at hotels and beaches with stories from Cape May, NJ, visualization of school segregation in photographs by Wendell White, and keynote speaker Spencer Crew, Robinson Professor of U.S. History at George Mason University.

The $75 registration fee includes admission to Grounds For Sculpture and meals. This event is sponsored by the New Jersey Council for the Humanities and the New Jersey Historical Commission.
