Confronting Slavery at Joseph Lloyd Manor

Join Preservation Long Island for the Jupiter Hammon Project, a major initiative to develop a more relevant and equitable interpretation of Joseph Lloyd Manor, one of Preservation Long Island’s historic houses and a site of Black enslavement. While enslaved at the Manor, Jupiter Hammon (1711–ca.1806) wrote powerfully about the social and moral conflicts slavery raised in the newly formed United States.

At this final roundtable, a panel of museum professionals and historic site interpreters will address the lessons learned from the previous two sessions. Discussions will explore how historic sites, like Joseph Lloyd Manor, can effectively engage audiences with difficult historical narratives, and encourage responsible, rigorous, and relevant dialogues about the region’s history of enslavement and its lasting effects on our society today.

Moderated panel discussion featuring Dina Bailey (Mountain Top Vision), Joseph McGill (Slave Dwelling Project), and Jessa Krick (Historic Hudson Valley) will be followed by a virtual break-out session for project stakeholders to reflect and respond to the conversation.

The 90-minute panel discussion is FREE and open to the public. Please reserve your tickets through Eventbrite.

Please email info@preservationlongisland.org for more information about joining breakout sessions to reflect and respond to the conversation.
