African American Legacy at Historic Rosedale

The African American Legacy at Historic Rosedale project was created in April of 2021 with the development of the African American Legacy (AAL) Committee. The committee was charged with formulating steps to expand and promote the truthful, compassionate, and equitable presentation of the African Americans – both enslaved and freed – who lived and worked at Historic Rosedale. The project, while ever evolving, will mainly consist of exhibits and programming which will depict aspects of the life of enslaved and emancipated persons during the 19th century and their descendants during the 20th and 21st centuries. In the fall of 2023, The African American Legacy Memorial broke ground. One of the long-term goals of the project is the development of a small educational facility dedicated to the African American Legacy at Historic Rosedale.
