Call in to speak with the host
Herbert Seignoret, Associate Director of the Institute for the Exploration of Seneca Village History, will speak about Seneca Village, an African-American community in the 1800s located in Central Park. Described as the "largest and wealthiest community of coloured people in this city, perhaps in this country." Within a few years the community developed into a stable settlement of over 250 working class people with African Americans owning more than half the households in the village. Two African Methodist churches were constructed in the village.
