As many of you know, NOT IN OUR TOWN PRINCETON is a multi-racial, multi-faith group of individuals who stand together for racial justice and inclusive communities. Our focus is to promote the equitable treatment of all, and to uncover and confront white supremacy — a system which manipulates and pits all races and ethnicities against each other.
Our goal is to identify and expose the political, economic, and cultural systems which have enabled white supremacy to flourish, and to create new structures and policies which will ensure equity and inclusion for all. In our commitment to uncovering the blight of white supremacy on our humanity, we take responsibility to address it and eliminate it in all its forms through intentional action, starting with ourselves and our communities.

At the Wyck House, 6026 Germantown Avenue Philadelphia PA, join friends and neighbors for an afternoon of thoughtful consideration of the lives of women who lived through enslavement in America.

After the Harriet Tubman Experience, guests will have the opportunity to hear Gwen Ragsdale, curator of Germantown’s Lest We Forget Slavery Museum, read a selection from her fascinating and highly relevant book, Peculiar Relationships: A Fictional Novel That Describes the Evolving Relationships Between Black Women and White Women from Slavery to Current Day (2014).
