Videos and Media

Although our mission is deeply rooted in illuminating the past, we are determined to bring you modern and convenient ways to engage with us. No matter where you are, we want you to be able to experience the stories, perspectives, and community that Sotterley has to offer. Below are all the ways you can find Sotterley content and join in some of our programming.



Interested in past programming or the stories of our descendants? We are currently working to archive as much as possible to our YouTube and hope to make it a place you can visit any time you miss a virtual event.

Common Ground

Each year Sotterley offers free programming to reach our goals of bringing more education and culture to our community. The Common Ground Initiative aims to bring together Sotterley descendants, community, and partners to tackle topics of racism, discrimination, equality, and activism. Currently our Common Ground programs are being offered virtually. You can see this year's guests and our current schedule at the link below!

Sotterley's Vault

Don't see a past event you were interested in on our YouTube? Don't worry! Some events are still located on our vault page while we work on archiving all our content. Speaker's Series, Common Grounds events, and The Big Picture are currently still located in the Vault until our archiving is complete.
