Along with many places in the United States, the North is disconnected from its slave-owning past. By compiling a comprehensive, public list of enslaved persons from the Colonial period to the last recorded enslaved person in East Hampton and the surrounding communities, the Plain Sight Project is reconciling with this forgotten history while taking a step to place these people and their stories back into our nation's founding narrative with outreach to public and private schools.
