Rocks in the Garden: A History of Slavery in Morris County
2 West Main Street
Thursday, Feb. 7, 7:00-8:00 pm
Learn about slavery in Mendham, and venture out to Chester, Morristown, New Vernon and Hanover while exploring slavery in Morris County as a whole. We will look at the slave owners and the enslaved, who they were, how they lived, how they were treated, the rifts slavery caused in the community, and the debate about slavery within the press of Morristown. We will also discuss how history is told, the marginalization of the enslaved, and the commemoration of slavery in the area. Talk will be presented by Mike Snyder, historian and teacher.
