Slavery in the President's Neighborhood - with White House Historian Sarah Fling 

Join White House Historian Sarah Fling as she explores this history and shares the lives of some of the enslaved workers who built, lived, and worked at the White House.

NOTE: You will need to be signed into Zoom to attend this program via the web.

Many people think of the White House as a symbol of democracy, but it also embodies America’s complicated past and the paradoxical relationship between slavery and freedom in the nation’s capital. The White House Historical Association’s Slavery in the President’s Neighborhood initiative explores this history and shares the lives of the enslaved workers who built, lived, and worked at the White House. Join White House Historian Sarah Fling as she shares this research and highlights a few of these fascinating individuals.
