How can Preservation Long Island best engage Joseph Lloyd Manor visitors with Jupiter Hammon’s story and the region’s history of enslavement?
Saturday, October 24, 2020
10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Registered webinar viewers have the opportunity to submit questions in real time for live discussion among the expert panelists!

Born into slavery on Long Island and educated alongside his future enslaver, Jupiter Hammon (1711–ca. 1806), one of the earliest published African American writers, endured the American Revolution and witnessed the founding of a new nation.

At this final roundtable, moderated by Cordell Reaves, Historic Preservation and Interpretation Analyst with the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation, a panel of museum professionals and historic site interpreters will explore how historic sites, like Joseph Lloyd Manor, can effectively engage audiences with difficult historical narratives, and encourage dialogue about the region’s history of enslavement and its lasting effects on our society today.
