Legacies of Slavery: Confronting the Past; Informing the Future
August 28 - August 30
Save the Date!
Inspired by the landmark 1619 Project, people across the country are taking a deeper look at the legacies of slavery that have shaped 400 years of U.S. history, culture, economy, politics, and law—and shape us still. From the origins of democracy and capitalism, to the on-going crises of mass incarceration, income inequality, and climate change, historians, scholars and activists are understanding new ways to view our collective past and address its enduring impacts; a necessary reckoning if we are to build a free and equitable future.
John Brown Lives!, the Great Camp Sagamore invite all who are interested in these issues to join us for an exciting Adirondack weekend in this historic place to talk, reflect, learn, celebrate and look ahead. More information coming soon!
