The Enslaved African Memorial Committee (EAMC) was established in 2015 by a group of concerned and dedicated Teaneck residents. The goal of the committee is to commemorate the history of the Africans that were victims of the transatlantic slave trade and who were forcibly and brutally brought to the Americas yet made significant contributions to American history, particularly Bergen County and the Township of Teaneck. This memorial will be erected on the Municipal Green in Teaneck. It’s a story and viewpoint many people don't know...yet. Let’s make history!
*Make your contribution to EAMC to ensure that this generation and future generations may take pride in the fact that their ancestors played a critical role in building Bergen County and the United States of America! We need the generous support of individual donors, foundations, churches, organizations and corporations to make this Memorial a reality! We invite you to volunteer to support our mission.
