FREED, founded in 2005 in association with D.C.’s African American Civil War Museum, focuses on resurrecting characters from the middle of the 19th century often overlooked in textbooks: black women. The group came together after a number of like-minded women donned period dress at a museum event commemorating the establishment of the U.S. Bureau of Colored Troops during the Civil War.
