There was a beautiful baby blanket, clothing for an infant and an assortment of simple personal items in each package.

It was the product of a student group assignment conducted in 2005-06. The students were assisted by many Camden residents in their search for the history of African-Americans in Camden from the Colonial period through the era of civil rights.
