Conversations with the Past

Talk: Slavery’s Stubborn Imprint: Legacies of White Supremacism in Warren County

Speaker: Amy Godine
7pm at the Chapman, donations welcome

Slavery in Warren County was virtually unknown. And yet this practice and its profits were enmeshed in northern life. In 19th c. Warren County, slavery impacted manufacturing, commerce, consumer options, popular entertainment, media and politics. Independent scholar Amy Godine describes the complexity of a web that bound North to South much more tightly and confidently than we assume, with lasting repercussions for northern ideas about race.

This program requires a reservation. To register, please call (518)793-2826.
