Preserving African American History
How do you preserve African American history? Connecticut author Jill Snyder started with her own family. Her book: "Dear Mary, Dear Luther" is a rare collection of 1930's love letters written by her parents. While researching the book, Snyder discovered a unique story of a Black family's journey through American history.
On Long Island, the Town of Huntington is working to save the Crippen House, a significant relic of African American history.
