DESCRIPTION

Highland Executive Director Sara Bon-Harper and members of the Highland Descendant Advisory Council will discuss how the site is an innovative setting for understanding U.S. history through the stories of the individuals who lived there, and the events that shaped its economic, agricultural and political contexts. Highland is a laboratory for creative public history, and has been part of William & Mary since 1974. The new narratives of Highland’s past and present reflect the voices of descendants of people enslaved on the property, and are created through a practice of collaborative history.

2021 Black History Month Celebration
United for Justice: Lighting the Path Forward
The events of 2020 have brought the continued struggle of African Americans to obtain true equality and justice to the forefront of our nation’s conscience. What remains evident and became magnified is the need to sustain advocacy for lasting structural changes in oppressive systems. These changes will lead us to a new path forward that will ensure liberty and justice is for all. Join the James Farmer Multicultural Center as we share the stories of tragedy and triumph of African Americans in this nation.
