Family Friendly Event! VCPA is excited to be partnering with the New-York Historical Society for two virtual Living History @Home presentations in May. Join us for Celebrating Pinkster! on May 19. What would a Pinkster celebration look like? Enslaved Africans in 17th- and 18th-century New York used the festival as a way to reconnect with family and resist the erasure of their West African cultures. Explore the dance and music of Pinkster at this digital program. This New-York Historical Society program is in partnership with Van Cortlandt Park Alliance, Van Cortlandt House Museum and The National Society of Colonial Dames in the State of New York.  Click here to register.
