Slavery in the North Website Project

The prototyping phase of a website on the exploration of the history of slavery in the north during the colonial period.

Historic Hudson Valley is requesting $100,000 to develop a prototype that demonstrates the humanities ideas, digital technology, and public outreach for an online interactive documentary tentatively titled Slavery in the North. The website will shed light on the history of slavery in the colonial North, with a focus on individual stories as a means to personalize the past. Continuing our successful collaboration with design firm C&G Partners and evaluation firm ExposeYourMuseum, HHV will use the Prototyping grant to: 1) Consult with humanities scholars, museum professionals, education advisors, and multi-media storytellers; 2) Compile and expand upon content relating to all northern colonies; 3) Refine the website structure and user experience; 4) Develop scripts and digitize selected assets; 5) Develop a website prototype; 6) Test and evaluate the user experience; and 7) Finalize the website design and technical specifications for Production.
