Finding Phebe: Uncovering the History of Slavery in Warren, Rhode Island
Monday, February 26, 2018 7:00pm
Although 18th century Warren, RI was surrounded by the slave centers of Newport, Bristol and Providence, its small size has made it a footnote in what has been written about slavery and the slave trade. Building on the work of historians, Patricia Mues and Sarah Weed use primary sources – including wills, inventories, town meeting records, censuses and other documents – to identify the enslaved of Warren and learn their histories. Mues and Weed are co-chairs of the Warren Middle Passage Project and board members of the Warren Preservation Society.
Weaver Library programs are free and open to all. No registration necessary unless otherwise noted.
