Jamestown Rediscovery Foundation – $25,000

Legacies of 1619: Law and Race at Jamestown

The Jamestown Rediscovery Foundation will use this grant to expand its public programming to create a self-guided tour focused on the First Africans who arrived in Virginia in 1619. The tour will cover two central themes: (1) the origins of the rule of law in America and its evolution throughout the 17th and 18th centuries; and (2) the intersection of race and law through the gradual, systemic development of codified slavery in America.
