The Witness Stones Project is a project that seeks to acknowledge and honor the history of enslaved individuals who helped build our communities, but were not recognized for their humanity during their own lifetimes. The project is inspired by the idea that we cannot create a more just and compassionate world until we come to terms with our own history.
Inspired by the Stolpersteine project in Germany (and with their blessing), we hope to bear witness by installing a marker which recalls an individual enslaved person at a site of significance where they lived, worked, or prayed. We cannot change the past, but we can, through this project, give a voice to the voiceless and uncover their stories. We will partner with local schools to help students research the history of an enslaved individual from their community and reconstruct the memory of that person through the written record and, ultimately, with the installation of a commemorative Witness Stone.
We created The Witness Stones Project’s website and all of their branding and identity materials (logos, etc.) At C&D Studios, we are honored to be a part of this project and we are excited watch it grow as more communities have witness stones installed. We will continue to provide ongoing publishing and maintenance support.
