Join us on March 13 at 6:30 p.m. for a conversation between award-winning historian Sylviane A. Diouf and Pulitzer Prize winner Eric Foner about Diouf’s new book, Slavery’s Exiles: The Story of the American Maroons.
In a preview of the talk, Diouf said: “One of my most surprising discoveries was the existence of maroons who have been completely overlooked. I call them “borderland maroons” because they settled in the woods and swamps bordering plantations. What is astonishing is that individuals, mothers with children, and entire families lived there for years in underground homes. Something else amazed me: the extent of the enslaved community’s solidarity without which the maroons could not have survived. The maroon experience was truly extraordinary and sheds new light on the larger slave resistance.”
Free! Registration required.
