Event is virtual.
During its years as a private residence, enslaved women made up a significant
portion of the site's residents, but left little to no records behind. Their
white owners were predominantly women who had few rights of their own, but
directed daily operations on the property. Years later the site became home
to a women’s college that embraced new found roles and responsibilities for
women, and the societal expectations put upon them. Join us virtually to
learn more about the complicated lives of women associated with
Hampton-Preston Mansion throughout the site’s history.
