Preservation Long Island is one our key partners in our ongoing People of Color Burying Ground project.
Why did Long Island have one of the largest enslaved populations in the North during the 17th and 18th centuries? This virtual round-table event will address Jupiter Hammon’s Long Island as a hub of the Atlantic slave trade and a key player in a global economy dependent upon Black enslavement. Scholars will explore identity, agency, and connection among the region’s free and enslaved communities; and how we collectively remember and engage this difficult past.
A moderated panel featuring Dr. Craig Wilder (Massachusetts Institute of Technology), Dr. Jennifer L. Anderson (SUNY Stony Brook), and Dr. Nicole Maskiell (University of South Carolina) will be followed by a virtual break-out session for project stakeholders to reflect and respond to the conversation.
The 90-minute panel discussion is FREE and open to the public but registration is needed: register HERE.
In the weeks following the round-table event, all panel and break-out participants will have the opportunity to join Dr. Craig Wilder, Dr. Jennifer Anderson, and Dr. Nicole Maskiell for additional Q&A sessions to dive deeper into topics and discussions explored during the formal roundtable.
‘TheJupiter Hammon Project is a major initiative and multi-year effort of Preservation Long Island. The goal of the project is to develop a new and equitable interpretation for Joseph Lloyd Manor, an 18th-century historic house museum and a site of Black enslavement on Long Island. This new interpretation will include telling the story of Jupiter Hammon (1711– ca.1806), one of the earliest published African American writers, who composed his most well-known works while enslaved at the house.

Morning Prayer Rite 2
Sunday, August 16, 8:00 AM - 9:00 AM
On Sundays at 8 am we will host a service of Morning Prayer on the bluestone patio overlooking the pond edge. For those who wish to come to the service, please join us by bringing a chair and find a spot on the patio for worship while maintaining six-feet of social distance. We ask that all coming to church wear a mask. The congregation will be limited in size to keep everyone safe. We would love to get a sense of how many will join us for worship, so please let us know by using this google form. Bulletins will be available online for worship together, but not in print at the service.

Virtual Coffee Hour
Sunday, August 16, 10:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Gideon Pollach is inviting you to a scheduled Zoom meeting.
St. John's Episcopal Church was the first religious institution to be established in Cold Spring Harbor. The first Episcopalian services were held in the little 18th century school house just above the site of the present church. The very first Vestry minutes, written in fine script on September 4, 1831, lists the founders who pledged $2,000 to build a new church.
We are GROWING! The mission and ministry of St. John’s is getting stronger and reaching far and wide. With the addition of Mary Beth, our new Curate, our Sunday school, youth programs, pastoral care and outreach activities will continue to flourish.
