Description

New Jersey’s history includes enslavement of African Americans and existence of free black communities. Black and white residents either helped each other or stood in the way of equality and equity for all. At times, the fates of black and white communities were “tied” to each other. The “ties that bind” us together as a community can be tight enough to encourage cooperation, or too tight, leading to conflict. Explore how these ties existed and changed over time in Morris County and New Jersey and consider how those ties are manifested today.
