Audience participation is strongly encouraged!
Echoes of the Enslaved - A Legacy of Enslavement Panel Discussion (REGISTRATION CLOSED)

Reservations are no longer being accepted for this event. There is no waitlist, but please call us with questions. The Echoes of the Enslaved event series is part of a unique two-day commemoration held with the generous cooperation of The Slave Dwelling Project (www.slavedwellingproject.org). Three public events will address the lasting legacies of chattel slavery in Prince George's County and discuss archaeological discoveries that have provided insight into the daily lives of individuals who left little or no written record.
Join us for a bonfire conversation the evening of Friday, September 6 and Public Archaeology in the Slave Quarters Saturday, September 7, at 10 AM at Mount Calvert Historical and Archaeological Park.
