Transitions: Little Africa and Greenwich Village, 1870-1920

In honor of Black History Month, Village Preservation celebrates the African heritage of the Village. Historian Gerald McFarland will discuss the rich history of “Little Africa,” an area located in the South and West Village at the turn of the century, and its relation to the rest of the Village as it developed over 100 years ago. While this facet of Village history is often overlooked, Village Preservation’s South Village project has attracted more attention to it.
