313+ ancestors speak project

The Ancestors Speak is a project designed to give voice to the lives of the 313+ enslaved and free African ancestors buried on the grounds of Siloam-Hope First Presbyterian Church (formally First Presbyterian Church) in Elizabeth New Jersey. The story of the 313+ begins with three distinct entities: Siloam-Hope First Presbyterian Church (formally First Presbyterian Church), Old First Cemetery, and Snyder Academy of Elizabethtown

Safe Interaction Program

During one of our 313+ Ancestor Video Blog series, one of the residents of Elizabeth voiced her concern regarding the safety of her autistic son. Chief Sacca, a strong supporter of the 313+, was on the call as well. The Safe Interaction Program is the result of that interaction.
