Join us as we celebrate Peekskill's Black heritage with a series of selected images from the 1800s through 2011. 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 Colin T. Naylor, Jr. Local History Room of The Field Library.
