Friday, March 8: Plain Sight Project: Slavery on the East End

Donnamarie Barnes and David Rattray, co-directors of the Plain Sight Project, will discuss the history of slavery in Colonial North America, their research on enslaved individuals on Eastern Long Island, and the creation of the Plain Sight Project. Featuring a comprehensive, public list of enslaved persons from the Colonial period to the last recorded enslaved person in East Hampton in 1830, the Plain Sight Project is reconciling with this forgotten history while taking a step to place these people and their stories back into our nation’s founding narrative.
