Stenton hosts a conversation to gather public input as artists La Vaughn Belle, Kenturah Davis, and Karyn Olivier present their ideas for a new memorial to Dinah, an enslaved woman who lived at the site and who is credited with saving Stenton during the American Revolution.

Throughout Inequality in Bronze: Monumental Plantation Legacies, Stenton will capture what matters most to neighborhood residents in the representation of Dinah. Irma Gardner Hammond, a storyteller who portrays Dinah, serves a residency at the historic site, incorporating new research and participating in the community conversations to enhance her first-person interpretation.
