This virtual exhibition, Slavery and Freedom in the North, was modeled after the exhibition, Intimate Strangers: Slavery and Freedom in Fairfield County, 1700-1850 which was on view at The Historical Society of the Town of Greenwich October 15, 2004, to April 17, 2005. The exhibition was curated by Peter Hinks, Ph.D. and Stacey Danielson. Intimate Strangers: Slavery and Freedom in Fairfield County, 1700-1850, was made possible by a grant from the Connecticut Humanities Council and a generous gift from Jean and David Wallace.
Slavery and Freedom in the North is made possible through a grant from the Institute of Museum and Library Services.
Slavery and Freedom in the North is designed to be a permanent exhibition for visitors of all ages as well as an educational tool for teachers and students in elementary, middle and high school. Curricula have been designed in collaboration with a Teacher Advisory Committee for a variety of education levels.
