Not everyone at the Mabee Farm was free to live and pass down their stories for posterity. The Farm was also home to generations of enslaved people like Sam, Bate, and Cato, whose voices have been lost to history. In this tour, we try to see the Mabee Farm as they would have known it, and to understand the painful, dehumanizing experiences of hundreds of other enslaved people in Schenectady’s history. This program is offered as part of Black History Month.
