“Life Inside a Slave Dwelling: Making a House a Home” (Virtual Lecture)

February 17 @ 6:00 pm

A panel of historians will lead an online discussion about the interior spaces, features, and finishes of slave houses. While the building exterior itself can be a reflection of what the enslaver chose to build, the interior shows how the enslaved made it their home. The discussion will explore the types of spaces and conditions that enslaved people faced, but also altered for their own purposes. The event is free, but a suggested donation of $10 is greatly appreciated.
