9:00 AM - 9:00 AM “Why Didn’t I Ever Learn About This? What Forgetting about Enslavement in the North Means Today”

Scholar Marc Ross will deliver two talks:

“Why Didn’t I Ever Learn About This? What Forgetting about Enslavement in the North Means Today

9:25 a.m.

Although slavery existed in all the Northern colonies and early American states and did not end in some parts until 1865, the collective memories of slavery in the region faded quickly. Slavery came to be seen as “only a Southern problem.” In recent years, as a result of the work of historians and a few local political activists and organizations, popular awareness of the North’s past is returning in ways that are relevant to how we understand contemporary race issues and conflicts in the United States.  Professor Robert Bellinger, History, will be the faculty discussant.

“Symbols and Statues — Public Spaces and Reconciliation”
