Enslaved and Free Persons of Color at the Burwell School, 1837 – 1857

February 23, 2019 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

A special task force assembled by the Research Committee of the Burwell School Historic Site will present its report.   The groups researched original documents, deeds, newspaper articles of the day and other sources to find the names of persons of color associated with the property during the time it operated as a girls’ academy.   In some cases all that was found were simply first names; for other cases full names and even family histories were available.
