Stenton hosts a series of community discussions to gather public input and capture the priorities of neighborhood residents in the commissioning of a new memorial to Dinah, an enslaved woman who lived at the site and who is credited with saving Stenton from burning by the British in 1777. Community conversations will address the current national conversation about the role of public monuments and the absence of memorials to Africans and African Americans who lived as slaves.
