Underground Railroad Monument Comes to Nyack
Inspired by Toni Morrison, honoring Cynthia Hesdra, the exhibit is open every Saturday from 1 to 4pm through May 31 at the Historical Society’s Museum at 50 Piermont Avenue, Nyack.
This exhibit showcases the upcoming Nyack Bench by the Road monument to the Underground Railroad and
Cynthia Hesdra (1808 – 1879), and explores Hesdra’s history as well as the accomplishments of Nobel Prize winning author and local resident, Toni Morrison, whose quote inspired the Toni Morrison Society’s Nyack Bench by the Road program. In addition, photos and text describing Nyack Bench by the Road projects from around the world create a compelling narrative about slavery and freedom.
The exhibition coincides with the dedication of Nyack’s Bench in Memorial Park on May 18th, 2015. For more info about the Historical Society of the Nyacks and to become a member, please visit www.nyackhistory.org
