Even after 300 years, Salemís witch trials remain a defining example of intolerance and injustice in American history. The extraordinary events of 1692-3 led to the deaths of 25 innocent people, the vast majority of whom were women. The exhibition includes tangible fragments from the past that illuminate the real lives of Salemís residents: those accused of witchcraft, their accusers, and those who defended them against legal charges, risking their own lives and reputations in the process. The exhibition and virtual presentation seeks to ask: In moments of injustice, what role do we play?
Presented by: New York Historical Society and Greenburgh Public Library, Dobbs Ferry Public Library, Harrison Public Library, Putnam Valley Library, Somers Library, Yonkers Public Library, & Warner Library.Presenter: Amelia Buccarelli
