The Price of Silence: Film Screening and Discussion

October 12, 2023 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm


Join Morven for a screening of The Price of Silence, part one of an Emmy-nominated documentary from Truehart Productions sharing the history of New Jersey’s enslaved people. Hear from descendants and historians telling their own stories and exploring why New Jersey was the last northern state to end the institution of slavery; a past Morven and its inhabitants were inextricably tied to.

The screening of the 25-minute documentary will be followed by a panel discussion with the filmmaker and historians featured in the film.

This program will be offered as a hybrid with the option to attend virtually or in-person. Click here to buy tickets. If you’d like to participate in the program virtually, please select the virtual ticket option at registration. You will receive a Zoom link in your email confirmation from Eventbrite.

This event is hybrid – held both in-person at Morven’s Stockton Education Center and online. A Zoom webinar link will be shared with virtual ticket holders upon registration.
