Descendant Communities

In post-conflict settings around the world, family members often play a galvanizing role in advocating for truth and justice for their loved ones lost to war and violence. In North America, through the use of family records, oral histories, and some formal documentation, descendants of enslaved communities have become powerful advocates for uncovering, preserving, and amplifying the history of their ancestors.

In our next webinar, we will shine a spotlight on these dynamic communities – examining the importance of these vital groups and how Sites of Conscience can better engage and work with them today. We will be joined by Elizabeth Chew, of James Madison’s Montpelier, a representative of the Montpelier Descendant Committee, as well as Bill Green from the Clotilda Descendants Association.
