Talk: Lost and Found in Adirondack Memory: An Update from the Timbuctoo Archaeology Project
Speaker: Dr. Hadley Kruczek-Aaron
In this talk, SUNY Potsdam archaeologist Hadley Kruczek-Aaron will share a behind-the-scenes look at the archaeological research project featured in the recent documentary Searching for Timbuctoo (dir. Paul Miller). She will highlight the stories and experiences of the Black families who came to the Adirondacks to establish a 19th-century farming settlement known as Timbuctoo. She will describe the discoveries made, lessons learned, and questions that remain in the decade’s long search for sites associated with this community, which was formed to create opportunity, fight for racial justice, and change American history in the process.
