Life Inside a Slave House
Thursday, February 17, 2022

Virtual Lecture 6:00 p.m.

Join us for a panel discussion on life inside a slave house. This program will go beyond the typical bricks and mortar discussion of slave houses, since many of those buildings would have been built at the discretion of a white owner, and look at the archaeological and historical evidence of the choices that the enslaved did make regarding how they lived with those buildings and made it their home.

Sign up today! Suggested donation, $10.
