The Lies We Were Taught: The Black Family

September 12 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

Sankofa Tour Guide: Daniel Comly

At the turn of the 19th century, Black abolitionists are changing public attitudes about slavery and challenging racial bias in the courts. In Portsmouth, never-enslaved and now-freed Black adults share households with not-yet-free elders and children who are owned by their buyers. It is a time of possibilities, hope, and fear. True stories about these families will describe how a community of Black Americans were striving to create a life and place in this northern state.
