Ending Erasure: Recognizing African Americans in the Cultural Landscape

Two years of archaeological research at the John Dickinson Plantation in Dover, Delaware has led to the identification of a burial ground which likely holds the enslaved individuals and other African Americans who lived, worked, and died on land owned by the Dickinson family. This important discovery presents a powerful moment for every Delawarean as we come together to think about the stories that have been forgotten. Presented by the Hockessin Historical Society.
