Garden to Nurture Human Understanding: Planning Phase

May 24, 2018 at 7:00 PM | Teaneck, NJ | Teaneck Public Library
You're invited to join us for a joint design presentation featuring the architects of The Garden to Nurture Human Understanding: Anthony Lovino, Rodney Leon, and Alan M. Hantman. Introductory remarks by Senator Loretta Weinberg and Teaneck Mayor Mohammed Hameedudin.

The Garden to Nurture Human Understanding is a unique cooperative project between The Enslaved African Memorial Committee, the Northern New Jersey Holocaust Memorial & Education Center, and the Teaneck Library. The Garden will feature a memorial to enslaved Africans commemorating the
sacrifices and history of slavery in this region, along with a memorial & education center to teach about the history and lessons of the holocaust. These outdoor exhibits will be complemented by designated spaces within the Teaneck Library. The purpose of the Garden is to memorialize the past and teach the lessons of tolerance and mutual respect for a better society.
