Ancestors Speak Project
The 313+ Ancestors Speak Project is designed to give voice to the lives of the 313+ enslaved and free African Ancestors buried on the grounds of the Siloam-Hope First Presbyterian church (formally First Presbyterian Church of Elizabethtown) in Elizabeth, New Jersey.
The graves of the ancestors are currently unmarked and deserve remembrance.
With the profits from the sale of engraved bricks, a monument will be dedicated to honor the forbearsí souls.
By creating a proper memorial and telling of their stories, it is our intention to bring them out of the shadows and into the forefront.
