Event description: 
Dennis Culliton will present the Witness Stones Project which was inspired by the Stolpersteine project in Germany (and with their blessing). The Witness Stones 

Project hopes to bear witness by installing a marker which recalls an individual enslaved person at a site of significance where they lived, worked, or prayed.  The Project will partner with local schools to help students research the history of an enslaved individual from their community and reconstruct the memory of that person through the written record and, ultimately, with the installation of a commemorative Witness Stone. 
 
Dennis Culliton is a middle school history teacher, a local historian, and the chair of the Witness Stones Committee.

To those who are interested in learning more about the Witness Stone Project, you are invited to attend the upcoming panel discussion at the Guilford Library which will focus on our project to document the history of slavery in Guilford and to remember those enslaved.
