Independent historian Anne Farrow will discuss the story behind Ghost Ships: Connecticut, the Slave Trade & Human Memory, to be published by Wesleyan University Press in 2014. Anne followed a set of slave ship logs from New London to Sierra Leone, West Africa, and rebuilt a long-missing chapter from the story of Connecticut. Co-author of Complicity, How the North Promoted, Prolonged and Profited from Slavery (Random House/Ballantine Books, 2005), Anne will share her research and photographs from an abandoned slave castle in West Africa as she explores a forgotten history. Jazz follows in the Atrium. No registration required.
