Equity Speaker Series
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.
