At the first meeting, we’ll begin with a Business Meeting from 6 to 7 PM.
This month, from 7 to 8 PM, Shamele Jordon will join us to and present “Clues of Enslavement, Era by Era,” where we’ll review the records available documenting the enslaved. We’ll learn how to locate, understand, and use the details to uncover lives previously hidden. We will discuss: people as property, escapees underground, fighting for freedom, memories of Massa.
We’ll wrap up with updates from our Committee Chairs and upcoming events. We’ll also have a special door prize to be sure to stay until the end! See you there!
