Summer Program Audience




Explore the story of slavery in the colonial North through virtual tours of historic sites and locations throughout the Hudson River Valley and New York City. A leading team of scholars and museum professionals will guide our examinations of how representative sites, museums, and municipalities have preserved and interpreted slavery. Workshop participants will consider what these choices mean for how we understand and teach the history and legacy of slavery in America today. All sessions will be conducted remotely, and the workshop will include a mix of synchronous and asynchronous learning.
