In Person Panel Discussion

Thursday, October 6, 10am-12pm

LMC Student Union Conference Center

In 1825 William Grimes published the first book-length autobiography written by a fugitive slave called The Life of William Grimes.   This landmark text chronicles Grimes’ journey from slave to free man and is a powerful condemnation of slavery.  Join Grimes’ great-great-great-granddaughter Regina Mason and LMC History professors Patrick McCarter and Courtney Goen for a presentation and panel discussion of the powerful impact of enslaved narratives.  Refreshments and book signing will follow.

Co-Sponsored by the LMC Office of Equity and Inclusion, the Umoja Scholars Program and the LMC Honors Program
