An Evening with Anne Farrow

October 29       6pm

 

 

The 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.

 

Anne Farrow was nominated 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 Office of the State Historian and a consortium of Connecticut libraries and museums. She is at work on a new book about slavery and New England memory, based on the log of an 18th century New London slave ship and its story in Sierra Leone, West Africa.

 

This event is the first of a multi-year program of the Windsor Conversation on Race Committee which will undertake a historical review of race relations in our community and region.  Please join Anne Farrow on October 29, 2009 at 6:00 PM at the Windsor Historical Society, 96 Palisado Avenue, Windsor, CT 06095.
