ReImagine Lefferts Community Conversation
Prospect Park Alliance presents a Community Conversation as part of ReImagine Lefferts, an initiative to re-envision the mission and programming of this historic house museum to explore the lives, resistance, and resilience of the Indigenous people of Lenapehoking whose unceded ancestral lands the house and park rests upon and the Africans enslaved by the Lefferts family.
At this Community Conversation, museum designers at Ralph Appelbaum Associates will share an emerging draft of an interpretive plan based on previous Community Conversations for guidance and feedback. We will also discuss what specific ways Lefferts Historic House can be a place of healing. Your participation will shape the future direction of Lefferts exhibits and programming. Please join us to help steward this important project!
Lefferts Historic House is an 18th-century Flatbush farmhouse and New York City landmark, jointly operated by Prospect Park Alliance and the Historic House Trust. Through hands-on experiences, cultural performances and imaginative play, visitors will explore the living histories of Indigenous and African peoples in Brooklyn and their relevance to diverse communities today.
This event is free and open to the public. Reservations are encouraged but not required.
