Event description

Description

In the 1790s, self-liberated slaves in Haiti fought for their independence from French colonial rule. While the Haitian people ultimately won their independence, hundreds of slaveholders fled from Santo Domingo to Philadelphia during the conflict, bringing their slaves with them and perpetuating their captivity.

Join us to uncover how to integrate this important Philadelphia history into your classroom with our educator. Then, under the guidance of historian Scott Heerman, you’ll use historical maps and documents to rethink what it meant to be enslaved during this time and reexamine what it meant to be an abolitionist.
