This year marks 400 years since the institutionalization of slavery in colonial America. A group of faculty, staff, administrators, and students have come together to organize several ambitious events from September through December 2019. This series of events calls on the campus community to reflect on the institutionalization, existence, and effects of slavery. Its purpose is to celebrate the resilience of African Americans, primarily those living on the Eastern Shore and in the State of Maryland. In particular, we plan to highlight the achievements of the Eastern Shore's own Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass.
