Forged in Iron and Bone: Unveiling Faces of the Enslaved

at Delaplaine Center for the Arts, Thursday, June 24, 6:30 – 9:30pm with unveiling at 7:30.

 

On June 24th, the facial reconstructions will be unveiled at the Delaplaine Center for the Arts in Frederick, Md. Archaeologist Elizabeth Comer and Smithsonian Institution forensic anthropologists Dr. Douglas Owsley and Ms. Kari Bruwelheide will discuss the process of forensic facial reconstruction and the Catoctin Furnace burials. Public historian and historical interpreter Cheyney McKnight will discuss her interpretation of the headwrap she prepared for the young mother depicted in one of the facial reconstructions. Ms. McKnight is internationally known for her YouTube channel, “Not Your Momma’s History”. Ancestral Master Drummer Joseph Ngwa will begin the unveiling with djembe drumming followed by a reading of the original narrative poem “Ironworker” from the collection Catoctin SlaveSpeak written by Elayne Bond Hyman. The event is open to the public. Funds raised will go to restore the Museum of the Ironworker at 12610 Catoctin Furnace Road, Thurmont, Maryland where the reconstructions will be permanently on display.
