South End: Past and Future - The Journey to Rapp Road and Beyond

Come learn about the African-American history of Great Migration from Mississippi to Albany, New York, and its connection to the South End.  Experts from the Rapp Road Historical Association will use Augmented Reality (AR) technology to bring pictures to life and show how African-Americans migrated from Mississippi to settle in the South End and Rapp Road.  They will also share new opportunities for studying and sharing your own family histories.  Light refreshments will be served.  Registration is requested: please register online, in person at any branch or by calling (518) 472-0485
