Free at Last? Slavery in Pittsburgh in the 18th and 19th Centuries, an exhibition created by the University of Pittsburgh, traces our region's longstanding involvement with slavery.

The exhibit is centered on records from 1792-1857, newly discovered by the Allegheny County Recorder of Deeds, that document the sale, freedom rights, and imprisonment of more than 50 slaves and indentured servants in Western Pennsylvania.

Free at Last? also features biographies of leading abolitionists, successful freedom stories, and a George Beck painting that is the earliest-known visual representation of Pittsburgh.
