In moments of injustice, what role do we play? Even after 300 years, The Salem Witch Trials in Salem, Massachusetts remain a defining example of intolerance and injustice in American history. What factors led to this cruel episode, and how did this moment shape America for generations to come? It's time to uncover the extraordinary events of 1692-3 that led to the deaths of 25 innocent people, the vast majority of whom were women, and how America has come to reckon with this piece of its past.
Join New York Adventure Club and New-York Historical Societyon an exploration of the real lives of Salem’s residents during the 1692-3 Salem Witch Trials: those accused of witchcraft, their accusers, and those who defended them against legal charges, risking their own lives and reputations in the process.
Led by Anna Danziger Halperin, Associate Director of the Center for Women’s History, and Keren Ben- Horin, Curatorial Scholar in Women's History, our virtual experience reexamining the Salem Witch Trials will include:
Afterward, we’ll have a Q&A with Anna and Keren — any and all questions about the Salem Witch Trials are welcomed and encouraged!
