Since 2006 the Mid-Hudson Antislavery History Project (MHAHP) has brought together researchers, educators, community leaders, and members of the public to:
conduct and synthesize research on the history of antislavery in New York’s Mid-Hudson Valley, with special emphasis on the Underground Railroad;
interpret and share this history with a wide array of residents and visitors in our area, with particular attention to students and youth; and
place this local history in the broader contexts of racial slavery in the New World, the African-American experience, and antislavery legacies today, including the impact of this historic grassroots movement on subsequent struggles for racial and social justice.
MHAHP is a 501 (c)(3) organization chartered by the New York State Department of Education. We welcome volunteers and supporters of all backgrounds and interests to work on research, public programs, and community outreach. Please join us!
