Yvette Clarke writes in support of Duffield (again)

Representative Yvette Clarke has written again in support of the Duffield Abolitionist homes. In a letter to her former colleague City Councilmember Larry Seabrook, she expresses support for Four Borough Neighboorhood Preservation Alliance's call for public hearings of the Civil Rights Committee. She continues:
Many questions surrounding the [Duffield Street] Houses in the Underground Railroad movement remain unanswered. It would be premature for the city to agree to the demolishment of these properties before further research is done to determine their historical significance.
