The meeting has come a long way over the centuries and part of that journey is recognizing a dark period of the past and doing what can be done today to bring those ways to light and give long overdue respect to those who are known only to God.

On October 6 at 1:00 p.m., Middletown Meeting will hold a Memorial Service for the enslaved Africans and African Americans buried in two locations on the meeting property. The event will begin in the meetinghouse; there will be a time for reflection and sharing. Baritone volcalist Keith Spencer and violinist Claudia Pellegrini as well as the Lincoln University Concert Choir will perform selections. Jesse Crooks, Bucks County Historian, will speak about African Americans in the First Generations of Freedom. Manumissions will be read. Those gathered will then go to the first site where a memorial marker will be dedicated and the burial ground blessed. The group will then go to the second location to dedicate and bless that area. Golf carts will be available for those who have difficulty walking. A luncheon reception will follow at 3:30. There is no charge to attend this blessed event.

This event is open to the public. It is possible that parking and seating will be at a premium. Middletown Friends request that Friends arrive early to allow time for others to park and get into the meetinghouse and that Friends who can climb stairs to please fill the balcony first.
