The Bills of Sale: Slave Deeds of Guilford County exhibit has been extended one week until Saturday, April 22.
This exhibit is presented in partnership with the International Civil Rights Center and Museum and the Guilford County Register of Deeds. In 2015, the Register of Deeds made these slave deeds, dating from 1774 to 1826, available online. These deeds show transactions concerning men, women, and children of color. The records provide opportunities to reflect on the inhumanity of the trade in people, but they also open research avenues for those looking for family connections.
