Thank you to all of our Presenters, Attendees, Honorees, and Honorary and Charter Members! The conference was a success because of you!
At our conference on June 2, 2018, we honored the work of the following individuals who sought to identify and uplift the contributions of enslaved people. Each award is named after an enslaved or freed person who made an outstanding contribution to our country, in spite of experiencing the horrors of US slavery. The awardees worked tirelessly to uncover history and disseminate it to others. They are genealogist, community leaders, authors, fundraisers, family historians, and researchers. We appreciate their efforts and congratulate them on their outstanding work.
