The Digital Archaeological Archive of Comparative Slavery (DAACS) is a Monticello initiative that collaborates with archaeologists working across North America and the Caribbean to bring the material and social lives of enslaved and free people to the public.

This live panel looked at DAACS’s collaboration with the Society of Black Archaeologists through their groundbreaking work on 18th and 19th sites of enslavement and freedom on St. Croix. Dr. Ayana Omilade Flewellen, Dr. Alexandra Jones, Dr. William White, and Ms. Gabrielle Miller discussed how their research and community education programs on St. Croix are empowering Crucian communities while deepening local and regional understandings of enslavement.
