Impressions of Liberty

Artist Titus Kaphar pictured with his art installation, Impressions of Liberty.  The installation—which addresses the 1766 sale of six enslaved people belonging to Princeton president Samuel Finley—was on display in November and December 2017 outside the Maclean House, where the sale itself took place.
