Introducing the 10 Million Names Project


August 24, 20233:00 p.m. - 4:00 p.m.

There are at least 44 million descendants of enslaved individuals alive today, but slavery separated families, erased names, and obscured facts. 

The 10 Million Names Project, recently launched by American Ancestors and its partners, aims to connect the family stories of these descendants to the 10 million men, women, and children of African descent who were enslaved in the U.S. prior to emancipation and to restore their names to history. 

Join Chief Historian Dr. Kendra Field and Vice President of Research and Library Services Lindsay Fulton as they share the scope of this project, the objectives, and our methodology.
