FL Humanities Grant Speaker – 400th Series
March 23, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
THIS EVENT IS CANCELED.
This special speaker series is part of the Timucuan Preserve’s Year of Remembrance events.
This year marks the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans forcibly brought to Virginia. While Spanish explorers had previously brought enslaved people to what became the United States, it was the arrival of the first enslaved Africans in English-occupied North America that led to the institution of slavery in the U.S. To remember the struggle of the enslaved, Kingsley Plantation, part of Timucuan Ecological and Historic Preserve, will offer a year of special commemoration programming to honor the stories and culture of those silenced by enslavement and tackle slavery’s lasting legacy.
