Confronting Slavery at Joseph Lloyd Manor
How can Preservation Long Island best engage Joseph Lloyd Manor visitors with Jupiter Hammon’s story, the region’s history of enslavement, and segregation on Long Island today?
At this final roundtable, a panel of museum professionals and historic site interpreters will address the lessons learned from the previous two sessions. Discussions will explore how historic sites, like Joseph Lloyd Manor, can effectively engage audiences with difficult historical narratives, and encourage responsible, rigorous, and relevant dialogues about the region’s history of enslavement and its lasting effects on our society today.
Moderated panel discussions will be followed by a series of break-out sessions, allowing participants to reflect on and respond to the conversation. Lunch on your own.
The event is free and open to the public. Registration is required.
**Preservation Long Island is closely monitoring government regulations and the unfolding COVID-19 crisis. This event will occur on October 24, 2020, but may be presented in a digital format. Please check back for updated information.**
