“History got under my skin.” That’s the way Waddell Stillman explains his 27-year stint at Historic Hudson Valley (HHV), first as CFO and now as President and CEO. It’s what led him and his team to develop a groundbreaking education program about slavery in the Colonial North. People Not Property is an interactive website and documentary now available online. It stitches together videos, interviews, reenactments and hundreds of artifacts and documents into a sobering narrative of slavery at Philipsburg Manor, the historic site in Tarrytown under the aegis of HVV.
