Book Talk: Black Lives, Native Lands, White Worlds

February 6 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

In 2019 and 2020, the National Park Service and many other organizations are commemorating a significant moment in American history: the landing of the first enslaved Africans in English-occupied North America and 400 years of African American history that followed.

Join us for an evening book talk with Dr. Jared Ross Hardesty, Associate Professor of History at Western Washington University and author of “Black Lives, Native Lands, White Worlds: A History of Slavery in New England” and “Unfreedom: Slavery and Dependence in Eighteenth-Century Boston.”

Free and open to the public. Doors Open 6:30 PM. BYOB-“Bring Your Own Book” to have signed by the author. (The book will not be available for sale at the event.)
