Principal Investigator Cheryl LaRoche provides intimate detail about the scholarly journey of the Hampton Ethnographic Project. She weaves personal observations with historical insight to deliver an instructive and informative overview of the problems overcome, new research findings and the surprising successes the project has achieved. For more than 20 years, Dr. LaRoche has been researching the Underground Railroad across the country. She used that methodology of combining history, oral narrative and geography along with mapping to uncover the African American experience at Hampton National Historic Site. The program is presented as part of a lecture series made possible through a grant by Maryland Humanities.
