People Not Property: Stories of Slavery in the Colonial North
Motion graphic design, Editing, Audio production
Historic Hudson Valley’s website sheds light on the often overlooked history of slavery in the Colonial North with a special focus on individual stories to personalize the past.
People Not Property: Stories of Slavery in the Colonial North is an interactive documentary that shares these stories of family and separation, work and community, negotiation, resistance, and perseverance.
A family whose members transitioned between slavery and freedom is told through a series of original illustrations and animated silhouettes, since no actual portraits of them exist.
