[NY] Valhalla New York - Blacks
I am trying to get some background history on Valhalla, New York. I have also seen it as Mt. Pleasant, Valhalla, NY.
An African American boy was born in the Grassland Hosptial in 1953. In 1953, was his a black hospital? His last name was Robinson. I have done exensive searching to find an African American amily in the 1940 census that could possibly be his family before his birth.
Valhalla appears to be a very small town of 3,000 people. It may have been even smaller in 1953. Was there a black high school in Valhalla in 1953? Does anyone know what the name of the black elementary school would have been in that area?
Any background info on Valhalla would truly help me. Thank you in advance.
Peace & Blessings
