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


April 2, 2016, 8:30 AM to 3:30 PM


Marsh Hall , Salem State University, Salem, MA, 01970

Please join Essex Heritage as we host scholars, educators, regional historic and cultural site staff, and other interested community members, to engage in public conversations about effective interpretation of northern slavery and its legacies.

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

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

Registration coming soon. 


This program is funded in part by Mass Humanities, which receives support from the Massachusetts Cultural Council and is an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
