Invisible Injustice: Discovering & Disseminating the Story of Slavery in the North

April 2, 2016 @ 8:30 am - 3:30 pm

Free

InvisibleInjustice_1 Join Essex Heritage as we host Key Note Speaker Joanne Pope Melish, scholars, educators, regional historic and cultural site staff, and other community members in conversations about effective interpretation of northern slavery and its legacies.

What are the stories that our institutions are not telling? What are best practices for approaching these topics with visitors, students, and the public? We will explore these topics and other questions via scholarly presentations, break-out sessions, and facilitated activities.

FREE. Registration required. Register!

10 PDP credits will be offered to educators who attend the symposium and create a lesson based on the content and training.
