Teacher Seminar: Slavery in Maine

For the first time the HHRC will present a program focusing on the facts, the effects, and legacy of slavery in Maine. Many people think that slavery is the “peculiar southern tradition” of the pre-Emancipation Proclamation days, but they are wrong. Slavery existed in Maine since the time of the first white settlers, and the profits from slavery helped to build several coastal communities.
