African American Freedom Colonies
February 8 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm| Free
Join us for a discussion between Darold Cuba, storyteller and graduate candidate at Columbia’s Oral History Masters of Arts program, as he discusses Freedom Colonies and how the Adirondacks own Timbuctoo fits in conversation with local archaeologist Dr. Hadley Kruczek-Aaron.

Since the inception of Western colonialism, the targeted peoples escaped the terrorism of Racialized Inheritable Phenotypic One-Drop – Chattel Atlantic Slave Trade Economy (RIPOD-CASTE) slavery, indigenous mass genocides, Jim Crow, Black Codes, and other human rights abuses, creating their own “colonies of freedom” and successfully protecting these “safe spaces.”
At 6 pm there will be an optional guided snowshoe or walk, along the Farm’s trails.
