The SHM, CANY, and the Landscape of Carceral History

Mar 21st, 2024
Time: 7pm
Location: Equal Rights Heritage Center, 25 South St , Auburn NY
Price: Free

In December 1846 William Seward publicly heralded the formation of the Correctional Association of New York (CANY) and a body tasked with monitoring conditions within state prisons. Not quite two centuries later, the SHM has partnered with CANY as part of its ongoing exhibit on the Seward family connections to the Auburn Correctional Facility. Both organizations will discuss their entwined pasts and future collaborations.

This event will take place at the Equal Rights Heritage Center and is free and open to the public
