Irvington Historical Society Presents "Inside Villa Lewaro"

 A Zoom conversation with Ambassador Harold Doley, former owner and occupant of North Broadway’s historic mansion.

For 25 years, Harold and Helena Doley lived in the mansion built by the renowned Black entrepreneur, Madame C. J Walker, where they became students of her life and legacy.  Her business acumen is well known.  Less well-known aspects that Ambassador Doley will discuss include: her impact as a philanthropist; her support of civil rights icons W.E.B. DuBois, A. Phillip Randolph and Marcus Garvey; the history of the mansion since her death in 1919; and the future of the Villa and its role in Irvington.
