Journey to Freedom: The African American Experience in Delaware


Journey to Freedom: The African American Experience in Delaware, previously exclusively shown in the Journey to Freedom exhibition, is now available for online viewing

About Journey to Freedom

From the first Swedish ship that brought the earliest known man of African descent to the shores of Delaware, Antoni Schwartz, to the 1968 protests in Wilmington and the creative expressions of the present, Journey to Freedom considers the many paths African Americans take toward liberation. Using interactive displays and multimedia technology, Journey to Freedom captures the intricate stories of community, struggle, courage, sorrow, celebration, injustice, and resilience of African Americans in Delaware.
