9:00 am "Spirits of the Passage" exhibit gallery open

This humbling exhibition explores the circumstances of the transatlantic slave trade, gleaning facts and artifacts from the archaeological excavation of a sunken slave ship.  Launching in February in conjunction with Black History Month, “Spirits of the Passage” includes real artifacts from slave ships as well as other period items.  Iron shackles (some small enough to restrain a child), ivory tusks and brass bowls are only a few of the objects guests will find. How did the trade get started, who was involved and why did it thrive? These are some of the important questions this exhibition seeks to answer.

9:00 am "Spirits of the Passage" exhibit gallery open

This humbling exhibition explores the circumstances of the transatlantic slave trade, gleaning facts and artifacts from the archaeological excavation of a sunken slave ship.  Launching in February in conjunction with Black History Month, “Spirits of the Passage” includes real artifacts from slave ships as well as other period items.  Iron shackles (some small enough to restrain a child), ivory tusks and brass bowls are only a few of the objects guests will find. How did the trade get started, who was involved and why did it thrive? These are some of the important questions this exhibition seeks to answer.
