     She talks openly about her ancestors’ experience in the small North Amityville hamlet.  "North Amityville was just an area that the Township of Babylon claimed, because neither the Town of Huntington nor the Village of Amityville wanted the land, or its colored people, when the Village of Amityville was incorporated," Brewster-walker tells us.  For complete press release please follow this link - PRESS RELEASE

First, I would like to thank everyone for the wonderful emails and telephone calls I received over the Holidays.
Many have asked me about how and where to purchase my book The Colored Girl from Long Island, so I developed the attached information sheet with a form to purchase a "signed copy."  The information sheet will tell you how to order a signed copy, purchase from a book store or online.  It is also designed for your family and friends, who are non-internet users.
If you still have any questions, please call 202-558-7480 anyone in my office will be able to assist you.
Thanks and have a great 2007!
