Webinar to focus on African American life in New York

The New York Genealogical and Biographical Society will present “The African American Experience in Three of New York’s Southern Tier Counties, 1803-1960” on Monday, Feb. 22 at 7:30 p.m.

The African American experience in the rural “Southern Tier” counties of western New York State is largely unexplored. Using his own extended family as a case study, Dr. Biddle will document and describe that experience from the region’s first European settlement in the early 1800s through the 1950s when social and economic forces led to the departures of many to urban centers to the north and west.
