Celebrating the African Spirit researches and commemorates the lives of enslaved Africans and their descendants in Poughkeepsie, New York. DCHS is pleased to develop this trail with “CAS,” whose roots in the community go back decades when it was know as the Black History Project Committee. Dutchess County Government’s February sponsorship of our Virtual Event Space includes this new program, which as a result is available at no cost to the public.
