The Historic Halifax State Historic Site will open an exhibit about African American soldiers and offer live demonstrations.
Historic Halifax has a singular story in the fight for liberty starting with American patriots seeking freedom from Great Britain to freedom seekers escaping the shackles of slavery. In celebration of the 245th anniversary of the Halifax Resolves, the Historic Halifax State Historic Site will open an exhibit about African American soldiers and offer live demonstrations of colonial life April 10-12. “Seeking Liberty in Halifax” is a traveling exhibit opening April 10 that captures the experiences of African American soldiers in early North Carolina. It explores the search for freedom for the enslaved as Revolutionary War soldiers promised freedom, and the later journey along the Roanoke River that was part of the underground railroad and now is part of the Underground Railroad to Freedom Network. Additionally, a 9-foot-tall statue of Harriet Tubman leading a young girl to freedom will be exhibited outside the site’s visitor center until April 18. Admission is free. All COVID-19 protocols on masks, timed entry, and social distancing apply. For more information, visit www.ncdcr.gov.
