Welcome to Witness to History: Slavery in Guilford
The initiative seeks to uncover the local history of slavery, examine its legacy and share its findings.
Our research projects on individuals enslaved in Guilford conclude with the installation of a Witness Stone, faced with a brass plaque, in the sidewalk where the enslaved person once lived or worked.
These stones acknowledge lives lived in bondage.
