The Virginia Peninsula has a rich history of Civil War-Era emancipation and freedom that often gets overlooked because of the emphasis on its colonial past. In this talk, Dr. Becca Toy, recent graduate from W&M in History, will discuss restoring that captivating history to this narrative landscape.
November 4, 2 p.m. Location to be determined (Either Stryker Center or via Zoom). Visit the Williamsburg Regional Library's events listing for more information and updates about location.
