Getting to Know Pinkster, The Country’s Oldest African American Celebration
Once a major holiday in colonial New York, Pinkster is the Dutch name for the Christian event of Pentecost. For the enslaved and free people of African descent, Pinkster proved to be a unique New York historical holiday that incorporated African rituals and traditions. Led by Lavada Nahon, Interpreter of African History for NYS OPRHP, this virtual presentation will fascinate attendees with the history of this little-known holiday. Event is free and registration is required on Eventbrite.
