Historical Note

The Bedford-Stuyvesant Community Cooperative was a racially-integrated organization founded by sociologists Gerald Schaflander and Henry Etzkowitz in 1966, as a way to connect the diverse residents of Brooklyn's Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood to goods and services, including food, medicine, and childcare, while investing profits back into the community.
