Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn & Empire National Bank Support Black History Month

Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn & Empire National Bank Support

Black History Month Educational Programming

Stony Brook, NY Suffolk County Legislator Kara Hahn (5th District) and Empire National Bank are this year’s generous sponsors of Ward Melville Heritage Organization’s riveting live theatrical drama, Running Scared, Running Free.  Performed by St. George Living History Productions, it tells the story of slaves escaping through the Underground Railroad from the south to Long Island and north to Canada. Native Americans, Quakers, free Blacks and Abolitionists assisted them through the fascinating use of secret codes in quilt patterns as a means of communication.
