We have more than twenty years of experience developing and leading programming for schools and teachers about northern slavery and its legacy.

Our education department maintains expertise on the state of the field through ongoing research and conference participation, as well as through the Northern Slavery Sites Consortium, a network of historic house museums and institutions interpreting slavery founded by Historic Hudson Valley in 2018. We work in partnership with local schools to provide field trips (virtual and in-person) as well as teacher professional development workshops throughout the year.
