Yesterday was a HUGE day for the Weeksville family and a win for the Crown Heights-BedStuy community. Buffalo Avenue, where Weeksville Heritage Center resides is now officially Dr. Joan Maynard Way, honoring the founding member of the Society For The Preservation of Weeksville and our first Executive Director! With Joan as our guiding light, we will continue to tell the story of one of the first free Black communities in the US and use that history to propel us forward towards a brighter future for Central Brooklyn. Thank you to @senator_hamilton, @rcornegyjr, Jacob Morris, and former City Councilmember Al Vann for joining us in this effort. As former Brooklyn Borough President Howard Golden said, "Brooklyn is a kingdom and the crown we wear is made up of people like Dr. Joan Maynard. Not famous people, but regular folks that simply love Brooklyn."
