In Pursuit of Freedom

January 15, 2014December 31, 2017

This major, long-term exhibit explores the unsung heroes of Brooklyn’s anti-slavery movement -- ordinary residents, black and white -- who shaped their neighborhoods, city and nation with a revolutionary vision of freedom and equality. The exhibit is part of the groundbreaking In Pursuit of Freedom public history project that features new research on Brooklyn's abolition movement in partnership with Weeksville Heritage Center and Irondale Ensemble Project.

Supported by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities In Pursuit of Freedom opens at the Brooklyn Historical Society in Janary 2014, and will remain on display until 2018.
