Hidden Histories: The Enslaved Community at Michilimackinac

As part of the Mackinac Parks: 125 festivities, we want to explore elements of Colonial Michilimackinac’s history and culture that are not currently well-represented in interpretive programming and exhibits. This walking tour/discussion will focus on the enslaved community at Michilimackinac, and will be led by historian(s) from Mackinac State Historic Parks. This is a free event.

Mackinac – Our Famous Island, presented by Mackinac Arts Council

Detroit Public TV and Mackinac State Historic Parks takes viewers along its many shores and trails to experience the natural beauty of the island, visit landmarks that reveal its earliest history and introduce the people who still work to preserve this special place. There is far more to this sacred island than horses and fudge, and DPTV cameras capture the landscape and beauty while connecting us to the diverse communities and people who have been stewards of Mackinac Island throughout its history.

Presented in the Center for the Arts, located at Mission Point Resort. This is a free event. Make sure to visit the Mackinac Arts Council to check out its 2020 event schedule!
