Introducing 10 Million Names: Recover. Restore. Remember.

February 12 @ 6:00 PM - 7:30 PM EST

Cost: Free

There are at least 44 million descendants of enslaved individuals living today, but slavery separated families, erased names, and obscured facts. The 10 Million Names Project, launched by American Ancestors and its partners in 2023, aims to connect the family stories of these descendants to the 10 million men, women, and children of African descent who were enslaved in the U.S. prior to emancipation and to restore their names to history. Hear from Dr. Vincent Brown, Dr. Kendra Field, and Dr. Kerri Greenidge, members of the 10 Million Names scholars council, as they share histories and legacies of slavery in New England, the ongoing research of the 10 Million Names project, and ways to get involved.

This event is made possible by the 10 Million Names Project, in partnership with the Slave Legacy History Coalition, a descendant-led history organization; First Church in Cambridge; and Longfellow House-Washington’s Headquarters National Historic Site.

This is a hybrid event! Registrants may either attend online from home, or join the event at First Church in Cambridge (11 Garden Street), Cambridge, Massachusetts.
