Haddonfield Memorial High School teacher Holly Maiese and the Preserving Black Haddonfield Project Organizing Committee – a subgroup of the Haddonfield alumni society – created a project to preserve Haddonfield’s African American History through interviews with Black seniors. The HMHS English class worked together on senior interviews and biographical essays with about 10 elders between the ages of 70 and 100 to capture their experiences in Haddonfield. The inaugural publication of PRESERVE:  Narratives from Historic Haddonfield’s African-American Community was published in February 2023.
