Special thanks to the Stoutsburg Cemetery Association for presenting to our 8th Grade Class. Their shared stories, memoirs, and other primary sources regarding the 18th Century African American experience in the Hopewell area helped bring to life the Civil War and Civil Rights curricula we teach. We believe that our students understand the rich history that exist right in their own backyards, but few realize that history through the perspective of the African American residents.
