Virtual Lecture – The Legacy of Slavery in Maryland

February 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Christopher Haley will present “The Legacy of Slavery in Maryland,” including references to records and statistics the research program has unearthed since its study began at the Maryland State Archives in 2001.

From the day that Mathias de Sousa and Francisco landed in St. Mary’s county aboard the Ark and the Dove in 1634, Black Marylanders have made significant contributions to both the state and nation in the political, economic, agricultural, legal, and domestic arenas. Despite what often seemed like insurmountable odds, Marylanders of Color have adapted, evolved, and prevailed.

Join Chris as he shares runaway ads, domestic traffic notices, laws, and comparative reflections on the financial impact of the institution of slavery and Maryland.

Registration required.
