Freedom Strut

Kids Celebrate the anniversary of emancipation in New York State at Lefferts.

 Sunday, July 1, 2012
 4 p.m.

Lefferts Historic House

On July 4th, 1827, slavery was abolished in New York State. For many years this event was marked with annual celebrations. Revive this tradition by listening to stories of the struggle for African-American freedom, making your own Emancipation Day button, and strutting proudly in celebration as they did back then. $3 adult suggested admission; children 16 and under free.
