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.
