Family Bonds: Free Blacks in Virginia
After a new law in 1806 required freed enslaved persons to leave Virginia and therefore leave their enslaved loved ones, many free African Americans did the unthinkable: returned to slavery. Read about the lives of these brave men, women and children, and the communities they created after sacrificing their freedom. Written by Colonial Williamsburg VP of Research and Historical Interpretation Ted Maris-Wolf.
