Research: Looking for Descendants

Are you a descendant of one of the early African American families who lived on the land that is now Historic Greenbelt? Or do you have knowledge of African American workers who helped build Greenbelt? Please contact us. We would love to hear your stories!

And about the photo above (by Carl Mydans): The gentleman in the picture is a hod carrier who worked on the Greenbelt project in July 1936. He is holding a hod, which is used to transport bricks and mortar at construction sites.
