A Book by Beverly Mills and Elaine Buck.  

Celebrate Black History Month.

Authors and SSAAM (Stoutsburg Sourland African American Museum), co-founders Beverly Mills and Elaine Buck began collaborating over a decade ago into researching the lives of their African American ancestors who resided in the Sourland Mountain Region and surrounding areas. After many years of research, examination of records, deeds, church records and collection of oral histories, Mills and Buck were persuaded to write a book entitled, “If These Stones Could Talk”, which was released in November, 2018. 

Their book chronicles not only the hardships and stark realities that so many Blacks faced as slaves, and then “apprentices” in New Jersey, but also highlights the thriving communities, loyal veterans, committed churches and real economic contributions made by their ancestors that, without their efforts, were largely forgotten in local history accounts.

There will be time for Q and A after the authors discuss their book.
