A lecture about black people and ww1 and how they were treated. Free admission. Excellent lecture very well delivered and the message was clear - blacks got a raw deal in ww1 and particularly from general Pershing!

A block from the riverfront promenade, this place will give you a sense of the rich history of Hoboken. I'd also visit the library at Steven's Institute a short walk away for info on the Steven's family contributions to the city.
