RIVERHEAD, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — African-American hair products locked in a case at Walmart has stirred outrage on Long Island.

One shopper who chose to fight the policy may have succeeded in bringing about change, CBS2’s Jennifer McLogan reported Tuesday.

“That’s discrimination,” shopper Patricia Fulford said.

Suffolk County pushing to identify people buried at hidden African-American cemetery on Long Island

HUNTINGTON, Suffolk County (WABC) —

Historians in Huntington are trying to identify the people who may be buried at an old African-American cemetery in Cold Spring Harbor.

The plot appears to be the burial ground for at least three dozen people, based upon the placement of unnamed stone field markers.

The Jones Cemetery, located on a hill on Harbor Road just south of Lawrence Hill Road, is owned by the Jones’ family — a wealthy business family who owned much of the land in Cold Spring Harbor in the 18th and 19th centuries.

And those who are interred there are believed to be African-Americans who worked for the Jones family.

“Too often, we overlook the contributions African-Americans have made to the history of our community,” Huntington Town Historian Robert Hughes said. “We hope that with help…

Elizabeth Meaders of Staten Island owns the most comprehensive black history collection in the world


Elizabeth Meaders is a retired school teacher who taught at a school named after her great-great grandfather, who was the last slave freed on Staten Island.

In what may be the most comprehensive collection of African-American history assembled by a single person, Meaders owns over 50,000 items in her Staten Island home.

Meaders invited ABC7 into her home which at first looked like a makeshift museum experience, but took us back in time in a deep seeded history of America.

“I’ve been working very systematically on the collection for more than 50 years. This only being done for my own personal pleasure, but now I realize that I was on to something serious and worthwhile,” said Meaders.

In terms of African American History, this is the mother load.

“This is a World…
