Exploring the lives of women of color in the Daughters of the American Revolution. (DAR)

The purpose of Daughter Dialogues is to educate the public about the contemporary lives of members of color in the DAR.

Many people are not aware of the fact that the DAR has members of color or that men and women of color contributed to the Revolutionary War.

The information on the website is a result of research currently being conducted by Reisha L. Raney, non-resident fellow, W.E.B. DuBois Research Institute at the Hutchins Center for African & African American Research at Harvard University; Membership Chair, Maryland State Society DAR (2015-2018); and Regent, Harmony Hall Chapter, DAR (2013-2017)


 Research objectives include:

  • Documenting narratives of members of color and descendants of patriots of color in the DAR.
  • Examining the historical context of members of color in the DAR. 
  • Examining the changing perceptions among non-DAR members in response to the research.
