Join us as we celebrate Peekskill's Black heritage with a series of selected images from 1890 to present.   Curated from the archives of The Peekskill Evening Star and other sources, these timeless images represent a small portion of everyday life in Peekskill though time -- celebrating family, church, work, civil rights, and more.

Images selected by Frank Goderre, former Historian of the City of Peekskill, and from the archives of the Evening Star in The Colin T. Naylor, Jr. Local History Archives of The Field Library.
