Brooklyn Heights: “In Pursuit Of Freedom” Exhibit

Brooklyn Historical Society’s long-term exhibit takes a look at the heroes behind Brooklyn’s anti-slavery movement. “In Pursuit of Freedom” is told using maps, photographs, newspapers, census records and more.

Also notable is the combination of mediums used in this exhibit: public programs, on-line curriculum, an original theater piece by Irondale Ensemble Project and walking tours.

A memorial to Brooklyn Abolitionists that will be part of the new Willoughby Square Park when it opens in 2016.
