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 donor-advised fund of the Community Foundation of Dutchess County. We are a grassroots organization and welcome volunteers and supporters of all backgrounds and interests to work on research, public programs, and community outreach. Please join us!
