400 Years Later: 1619 & Its Aftermath

When: Tue., Oct. 1, 5-7:30 p.m. 2019

You are cordially invited to an October 1, 2019 expert panel dialogue on "400 Years Later: 1619 & Its Aftermath" here on our EMU campus in Rm. 310B of the Student Center. The year 1619 marked the first documented shipment of 20 Africans, whom history either describes as indentured laborers or as captives to the English-speaking colony of what was to become Virginia on a Dutch ship that ferried them from the West Coast of Africa. This event, which is LBC-credit approved, is sponsored by the Department of Africology and African American Studies. For more information, contact Charisse Nilles (734-487-3460)
