GATHER: Conversations led by Black and Indigenous Change-makers in Suffolk County, produced as part of Guild Hall’s Student Art Festival 2021: Past-Present-Future.

GATHER is a celebration of the East End’s diversity, a recognition of fault and colonization, and, most importantly, an opportunity to build and implement new understandings. Devised specifically for community leaders, service workers, teachers, and developers, this series platforms the voices and experiences of various BIPOC scholars, artists, and leaders, providing both lessons on our past histories, and strategies and examples of how to progress forward together.

13th Annual African American Read-In

Celebrate African American literature that transforms your voice into hope for the future. This year’s theme draws upon the Akan people of Ghana’s symbol, Sankofa; a bird facing backwards to pick up an egg from it’s back. This gesture symbolizes learning from the past to create a better future. That’s what great literature encourages us to do.

Sign up to read a short excerpt from a favorite work of an African American author along this theme. Including fiction, non-fiction, poetry, oral history, or family story.

We’ll begin with a reading of James Baldwin’s iconic “Letter to My Nephew on the One Hundredth Anniversary of the Emancipation,” by artist Michael A. Butler.

All are welcome to attend. Listeners encouraged!

Historic Preservation for the People: An Introduction Local, State, and Federal Policies and Practices

Did you know listing on the National and State Registers of Historic Places does not protect historic places from demolition or redevelopment? Only municipalities and local preservation ordinances can protect historic places from destruction. Nevertheless, federal and state preservation laws play an important role by offering attractive financial incentives like tax credits, or by requiring a more intensive process of environmental review for some projects. Explore how local, state, and federal laws work together to preserve historic places, and how you can support a more comprehensive approach to preservation in your community.
