To mark a successful season of programming and thank supporters who have stepped up to keep the doors open, Weeksville is holding an afternoon of food and community this weekend.

The afternoon is also the final session in the museum’s programming series, “Meals as Collective Memory.” Since the spring, Weeksville has been partnering with the New York City Commission on Human Rights to present a series of oral history programs centered around food and its place in knitting together community and inspiring Black-owned restaurants.

This Sunday, Chef Klancy Miller will chat with Ardenia Brown, former owner of the Bed Stuy restaurant Solomon’s Porch, for the final oral history conversation. Afterwards, attendees can enjoy food, music and the historic Hunterfly Road Houses. Treats from Arcadian Pastures will be on hand.

The event takes place on Sunday, July 28 from 2 to 6 p.m. at Weeksville Heritage Center at 158 Buffalo Avenue in Crown Heights. The afternoon is free but donations in support of their continued programming are encouraged. For more information and to register for the event visit the event page here.
