Freedom Bound: Runaways of the Chesapeake Exhibit

Freedom Bound: Runaways of the Chesapeake is a story of resistance to servitude and slavery in the Chesapeake region. The exhibit begins in the 1720s, during the colonial period, and ends in the 1860s amidst the nation’s Civil War. You will meet people who were treated as property, and discover how they resisted that condition and asserted some degree of control over their lives and circumstances.

Video, historic artifacts, actual runaway advertisements dating from 1728-1864, hands-on activities, mannequins, and reproduction clothing will all help to tell the story of real people who struggled for freedom.

The exhibit is located on the second and third floors of the Historic Annapolis Museum, 99 Main Street. Hours are Monday through Saturday, 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. and Sunday, 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Portions of the exhibit will also be on display at the Historic Annapolis Waterfront Warehouse, 4 Pinkney Street and Banneker-Douglass Museum, 84 Franklin Street.
