BROOKLYN (LOVEJOY), ILLINOIS

 

 

Brooklyn/Lovejoy is known as the oldest African American community in the United States.  It was an area that once thrived with numerous black owned businesses and a number of community churches.  This page has the promise of growth as things come to mind and hopefully visitors will also share their memories, photos and visions.  Scroll down for additional information.

Because many of the people I remember throughout my lifetime are still alive, I decided to do a surname page.  I hope this page will help researchers at least connect with a surname for the town.  Please send me an e-mail if you have names you would like to add to the list or a surname query.  Underlined links will take you to additional information about a surname.
