Finding Freedom tableau scene at the Museum depicting a British soldier of African descent trying to recruit a young boy of African descent to find freedom with the British army.

On the eve of the American Revolution, one-fifth of British North America’s residents were people of African descent. What did their lives look like during the Revolutionary era, how were they impacted by the Revolution, and how did they themselves shape how the new nation came into being? Teachers participating in this free workshop will join educators at the Museum to discuss these questions and shares resources and records for learning and teaching.
