Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice

The Center for the Study of Slavery and Justice (CSSJ) at Brown University is a scholarly research center with a public humanities mission. Recognizing that racial and chattel slavery were central to the historical formation of the Americas and the modern world, the CSSJ creates a space for the interdisciplinary study of the historical forms of slavery while also examining how these legacies shape our contemporary world. We are also attentive to contemporary forms of human bondage and injustice.

MARC LEVITT'S WOVEN IN TIME: THE NARRAGANSETT SALT POND PRESERVE

Woven in Time: The Narragansett Salt Pond Preserve is a 57-minute documentary film about a small piece of seemingly ordinary land located on the southern coast of Rhode Island. In the 1980s, archaeologists, working for a local developer, unearthed the remains of New England's only undisturbed Pre-Contact Period (1100-1400 AD) Native American coastal village. Used for dirt biking and adjacent to a suburban housing development and shopping center, this land, on a pond where the Narragansett Tribe located their origin story, became the center of an almost thirty year battle between the rights of property ownership and the social and cultural importance of preserving one of the most important archaeological sites on the East Coast of the United States.

Free and open to all.
