Lunch and Learn: Views on Slavery and the Digitization of Records

July 12, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Due to her extensive genealogical research, the Honorable Judge Scarlett will tell us how people in Hillsborough viewed slavery through written stories by area citizens, slave narratives, area newspaper and court records, and records in the Orange County Register of Deeds Office. As Register of Deeds, Mark Chilton will discuss the Slave Records Project and the Slave Records database for Orange County, which was created under his discretion. The result has been and archive that has deepened the truth-telling about race in Orange County and has enabled Black and Indigenous researchers to discover the rich story of their families and communities.
