Nearly 11,000 African Americans were enslaved in Wake County in 1860. “Enslaved Raleigh” will explore their lives and labors in an attempt to better understand race, slavery, and African American life in Raleigh prior to the Civil War. The presentation will look specifically at the Mordecai plantation which was home to over 200 enslaved people.
