Church Street, in front of Main Hall
The Anna Maria Samuel Project will unveil new historical markers that tell the story of African Americans who were enslaved by the Salem Academy and College before Emancipation and those who continued to work at the school into the 20th century. At the same time, the Single Sisters Museum will be open for the community to view its newly updated panels and exhibits. The Anna Maria Samuel Project will then facilitate a short walking tour of the campus, focusing on the sites that have significance to the school’s history with slavery and race. This event will culminate at St. Philips Moravian Church, at the end of Church Street, with a commemoration of those who were enslaved by Salem Academy and College.
