Join us in learning more about White House History right from your own home. Our Facebook Live series, White House History Live, delves into the stories that make up the history of the Executive Mansion.

The White House Historical Association’s new digital exhibit, “Slavery and Freedom in the White House Collection” explores the history of slavery and emancipation in the United States through art, furnishings, chinaware, and other objects in the White House. Learn more about these objects and the fascinating stories they tell from the exhibit’s curator and Association historian, Sarah Fling.

This event will be live streamed on the White House Historical Association's Facebook and YouTube pages starting at 5:30 pm ET on July 11.
