RALEIGH, N.C. – Discover records of enslavement from across North Carolina through the People Not Property project. The virtual presentation will be held Monday, November 7, 1-2 p.m., as part of the Friends of the Archives annual meeting.
Where can researchers find stories of enslaved peoples in North Carolina? The Digital Library on American Slavery and People Not Property project compile digitized archival materials to amplify these stories for students and historians and to assist African American genealogists. Project leader Richard Cox of UNC-Greensboro will discuss this important work, including its origins, partners, and goals of collecting and increasing access to these records from all North Carolina counties.
