CLP x Brownsville Heritage House (BHH)

Entrance to Brownsville Heritage House (BHH)

CLP x BHH was the first partnership event in collaboration with Brownsville Heritage House. The back to school energy of September was timely for attendees excited to learn more about local BIPOC heritage and social justice activism in honor of BHH founder, Mother Rosetta Gaston.

CLP x BHH participants had the opportunity to explore the local multicultural heritage centering BIPOC narratives on a community tour with trivia questions and prizes for the social justice rockstars. The walking tour included over 400 years of history starting in the 1600s with Dutch colonialism and coming full circle to present day social justice movements- like Black Lives Matter and Stop Asian Hate.

CLP x BHH was a Fractured Atlas fiscal sponsored project with in kind book donations from Brooklyn Book Bodega and arts as advocacy sponsorship and volunteers from Target: local Brooklyn stores.
