A History of Slavery in New Jersey

May 6, 2020

Durand-Hedden and the South Orange-Maplewood Community Coalition on Race created an extensive exploration of the History of Slavery in New Jersey. The exhibit was done in conjunction with our 2019 program on Juneteenth, the African American celebration of the end of slavery, and you can view it here.

An article about the Juneteenth program and exhibit has been published in Matters Magazine.
