Slavery in Mamaroneck Township (Video)

Slavery in Mamaroneck Township… How did we not know?

October 24, 2021, we invited Ned Benton and John Pruitts, the founders of REALM (Recognizing Enslaved Africans of Larchmont Mamaroneck) to speak to us about the neglected history of Slavery that existed right here in Mamaroneck. For those who might have missed Sunday’s presentation or want to refer to its content, please see the video above. In addition, the visuals in the referenced PDF tell the history of the enslaved people who lived and worked here in the very neighborhood where our synagogue sits today.

Look out for future programs that continue this mission of learning about Racism and where we as a community fit in the story, as we work towards restorative justice.
