Telling Our Story

OUR VISION:

 is one that acknowledges the multifaceted nature of acquiring and celebrating knowledge.  It hopes to honor and encourage the transmission of history through oral history, spoken word, paintings, cultural artifacts and other forms of artistic expression. It is important that the diverse cultural roots represented in the community are understood and spread through sharing and growing from one another.

THE SADIE PETERSON DELANEY AFRICAN ROOTS LIBRARY

is located in Poughkeepsie, New York. This grassroots initiative at The Family Partnership Center was created to focus on the African contribution to history and culture. Starting with an informative collection of books, videos, and programming for all kids, it has built pride among African-American children. The Library plans to include an adult research center.

Mission Statement: 

to collaborate with other community organizations to establish a library/center that will promote literacy, through the teaching and learning about the African Experience, including the History and Culture, and by the dynamic exchange of information, ideas and creativity.

 

The creation of the Sadie Peterson Delaney African Roots Library has been initiated by the efforts of the Library Action Committee consisting of representatives of various organizations who feel that the establishment of such a space will benefit the members of the community that they serve.
