Join us on Saturday, June 8, from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., for a Descendants Day at Highland. The Highland Council of Descendant Advisors welcomes anyone working on or interested in the histories of slavery, the shared work of making our present and future more equitable based on historical knowledge, and collaboration in research.
