Common Ground: Insights Into Elizabethtown’s Diverse Community, 1664-1864

Monday, January 15, 2018 at 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Brown University student and Snyder Academy Research Fellow Sean Briody will share original research about the founding families of Elizabethtown in 1664, the community of free and enslaved African-Americans who lived in Elizabethtown and the social and economic ties that bound together and divided the community in its early years.  The program will include a tour of selected sites in the burial grounds of the First Presbyterian Church in Elizabeth.  A reception with refreshments will follow the presentation and tour.

Please RSVP to Elliot Dee at [email protected] by January 10.
