ANNOUNCEMENTS

February Forum

On February 8, 2020, at 1:00 PM, DFCLT will present The Lonae A. Moore Memorial Forum: It Begins with Each of Us: Fostering Racial Understanding.

 

The forum will be held at the Museum of the American Revolution, our partner for the event, 3rd and Chestnut Streets, in Philadelphia.

 

Museum of the American Revolution Logo

 

Two African American veterans of the American Revolution, who fought for liberty and equality, rest in the cemetery on the Dennis Farm. Although they were free men, in spite of their service and that of thousands of Black men in the Revolution, liberty and equality were denied to the majority of Americans of African heritage. Since that time, we–Americans–have been working and are still working to become “a more perfect union” that lives up to the early promise of equality, especially in regard to race.

 

Both the Museum of the American Revolution and the Dennis Farm Charitable Land Trust are committed to telling a more full history of our nation’s beginnings and to keeping the best of our ideals alive, as an inspiration for the present and the future. The forum is designed with this in mind.

 

For more information, visit our website in the months to come.

 

Museum of the American Revolution

A beautifully carved and signed Revolutionary War powder horn taken from the lifeless body of Gershom Prince, an African American soldier and Dennis family ancestor who was killed in the Battle of Wyoming, is on exhibition at the Museum of the American Revolution for one year.  

 

The Gershom Prince powder horn is on loan to the Museum of the American Revolution in Philadelphia for one year. Denise Dennis spoke about the power horn at a press conference and a special reception at the museum.
