Program Description : The history of slavery is largely anonymous and the stories of the enslaved are often relegated to a footnote in history. Because of their proximity to American presidents, the histories of those enslaved by these men are well documented although not widely known. Lecturer Marilyn Carminio will tell their stories, and through vivid portraits we will learn about their daily lives and how they made sense of their existence as human beings. During our journey you will meet a Revolutionary War hero; relive dramatic escapes; become acquainted with the first African-American celebrity athletes; attend an important White House dinner and much more. Their stories are sure to inform and inspire you. All welcome.
