Since arriving in the Netherlands, Jennifer has been on a quest to learn about her Suriname family history, especially about her mother who grew up in the Holland in the late 1940s, after WWII. After Jennifer completed her studies she launched, Black Amsterdam Heritage Tours (BHAT), because of the lack of information and knowledge about the black presence in the Netherlands during the 'Dutch Golden Age', and no mention of either on Amsterdam city tours. The tour includes a walking and boat tour through the four main canals that reveals this 'hidden history' and traces of the Black presence, colonial products, owners, and more still present on canal houses of former plantation owners/shareholders, national monuments and in museums. In 2014 Jennifer co-authored the book, 'Amsterdam Slavery Heritage Guide' with over 100 locations throughout the city that are connected to the Dutch colonial past. Since launching BHAT in 2013 Jennifer has shared the tour journey with many local and international audiences and is now part of the 'Mapping Slavery Project Worldwide' connecting 'shared history' around the world. In 2015 she will launch: 'Black Heritage International Education Foundation'.
