Talking About Race Matters – Lecture Series: Jazz and Dance in NYC’s Harlem through Jazz Power Initiative

March 3, 2021

We are so delighted to continue our Talking About Race Matters lecture series that was so successful in August of 2020.

Join us on Wednesdays, February 3 through March 10 at 6:00 p.m.

Register online

About our Talking About Race Matters Lecture Series:
One of the most important topics throughout history and in recent months, is the topic of race. Given current events covered in the news, we at the Dyckman Farmhouse Museum feel that it is important to have and to facilitate conversations on race, even though they can be challenging. Because of this, we have put together a series of talks with experts, each looking at the topic of race from a different perspective. Our hope is that we can all come together, learn from one another, and continue the conversation. We hope that you will join us!

Week 1 – Wednesday, February 3 at 6:00 p.m.:
Title: Unearthing New York City’s Forgotten Past: Seneca Village the Life and Death of an African American and Irish Immigrant Community
Speaker: Mr. Herbert Seignoret, Director of Academic Advising at the Colin Powell School and Associate Director of the Institute for the Exploration of Seneca Village History
About: A discussion about Seneca Village and the research and primary sources that discovered its silenced history. This talk will explore the work done by the Institute for the Exploration of Seneca Village History to research and raise awareness on the silenced history of Seneca Village.

Week 2 – Wednesday, February 10 at 6:00 p.m.:
Title: The Story of Dyckman Oval: Uptown Manhattan’s Historic Negro League Baseball Stadium
Speaker: Mr. Don Rice, local historian and Dyckman Farmhouse Museum Board President.
About: A talk about the Dyckman Oval in Inwood through historical images. Using rare photos and recent research, we’ll hear the ballpark’s story from its creation to its untimely end in 1938, a full plate of a little-known NYC sporting life from the early 20th century.

Week 3 – Wednesday, February 17 at 6:00 p.m.:
Title: Zora Neale Hurston and Pura Belpré: Pioneers of Black and Latinx Folk Culture in Upper Manhattan
Speaker: Dr. Will Walker, Associate Professor of History at the Cooperstown Graduate Program, SUNY Oneonta
About: This talk details the work of these two remarkable women during the vibrant and tumultuous eras of the Harlem Renaissance and the Great Depression. It shows that Hurston and Belpré were pioneers in bringing Black and Latinx folk culture to New York and cultural ambassadors who profoundly challenged negative stereotypes and misconceptions about communities of color.

Week 4 – Wednesday, February 24 at 6:00 p.m.:
Title: The Enslaved at Sylvester Manor: Revealing their stories through Landscape and Memory
Speaker: Ms. Donnamarie Barnes, Curator/Archivist at the Sylvester manor Educational Farm.
About: A talk about the lives of the enslaved at Shelter Island's Sylvester Manor. Sylvester Manor on Shelter Island, the ancestral home of the Manhansett People, began in 1651 as a provisioning plantation worked by enslaved Africans brought from Barbados. For almost 400 years, the place has descended through the same family. Today as a not-for-profit organization, Sylvester Manor Educational Farms’ mission is to Preserve, Cultivate and Share the stories of all the people who lived and worked on this land. Their presence is felt throughout the historic Manor house and throughout the 235-acre landscape.

Week 5 – Wednesday, March 3 at 6:00 p.m.:
Title: Jazz and Dance in NYC’s Harlem through Jazz Power Initiative
Speakers: Mr. Eli Yamin, Managing and Artistic Director at Jazz Power Initiative, and Ms. Shireen Dickson, Dance Instructor at Jazz Power Initiative

Title: Generations of Slavery on the Dyckman Property in Inwood, 1661-1827
Speakers: Dr. Gretchen Sullivan Sorin, Director and Distinguished Service Professor at the Cooperstown Graduate Program and Mr. Richard Tomczak, PhD Candidate in History at Stony Brook University.
About: A talk about the research of our DyckmanDISCOVERED initiative, uncovering the lives of the enslaved who worked on the Dyckman farm. The lives of enslaved people of the Dyckman family shed light on the complex relationships forged in the environs of New York City and the transformation of slavery in the North.
