Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
To promote an appreciation of the African American legacy in Brooklyn and beyond, and to foster community empowerment and lifelong learning through research, interpretation and presentation of Weeksville History.
In 1838, James Weeks, an African American, bought a plot of land in central Brooklyn just 11 years after the abolition of slavery in New York State. His purchase marked the beginning of Weeksville, an important 19th century free Black community, whose residents established schools, churches and benevolent associations and were active in the abolitionist movement. Today, the Weeksville Heritage Center passes on this legacy of entrepreneurship, self-sufficiency, and creativity by offering tours and programs at the three Historic Hunterfly Road Houses located in present day Crown Heights.
