The African American History Tour will cover the stories of men and women, both enslaved and free, who built, maintained, and lived in Hammond-Harwood House. A focus will be three enslaved women — Mary, Matilda, and Juliet — who worked at the house in the early to mid-19th century. Other topics include how petitions for freeing certain enslaved men and women were handled, the aims of the American Colonization Society, and the successes and setbacks of one early African-American artist.
