Windsor Conversation on Race Committee, in partnership with
the Windsor Historical Society and the National Conference
for Community and Justice, presents An Evening with Anne
Farrow, veteran journalist and co-author of the seminal
work, Complicity, How the North Promoted, Prolonged, and
Profited from Slavery.

several times for the Pulitzer Prize, and is now the
managing editor for the Encyclopedia of Connecticut History
Online, a project of the Connecticut Humanities Council, the

of an 18th century New London slave ship and its story in
Sierra Leone, West Africa.
