Support the Park

MORVEN PARK IS PROUD TO LAUNCH THE 246 YEARS PROJECT, A SOCIAL JUSTICE INITIATIVE DEDICATED TO HONORING THE MILLIONS OF ENSLAVED MEN, WOMEN, AND CHILDREN WHOSE NAMES AND LIFE STORIES HAVE BEEN FORGOTTEN OR, IN SOME CASES, WITHHELD FROM THE NATIONAL NARRATIVE.

The 246 Years Project will bring to light thousands of untold stories of strength, resilience, and persistence. It creates the opportunity for truth-telling, memorialization, and reconciliation.

Join us in this important work by donating to the 246 Years Project today. Your donation will fund the creation of the database and support the research team in their meticulous efforts to locate, identify, and connect thousands of individuals.

This is the address that will be used for all mailed correspondence.

For many descendants of enslaved Africans, genealogy research hits a “brick wall” or a dead end at 1865. This image of the green plant breaking through the brick wall symbolizes both the ability of the 246 Years Project to break the genealogical “brick wall” and the strength and resilience of those who endured
246 years of enslavement.
