19th Century Brooklyn. Its waterfront is a busy and vibrant port vital to domestic and international trade; its warehouses filled with sugar, molasses, and tobacco. Brooklyn is built on the business of slavery.

Brooklynites, black and white, who went about living their lives with dignity and perseverance, who signed the petitions, raise the money, opened the schools, started the businesses and came together to change the direction of a nation. We sing their stories.

Color Between the Lines is a part of In Pursuit of Freedom, a collaboration between the Brooklyn Historical Society, Weeksville Heritage Center, and Irondale Ensemble Project, and the first public history project to explore the abolition/anti-slavery movement in Brooklyn.
