The Slaves in Our Backyard

March 8 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

During the Revolutionary Period (1764-1789) approximately 5,000 slaves lived in Connecticut including many here in Windham County. At this presentation by Pomfret Historian Donna Dufresne, you can learn about the role Windham County played in the institution of slavery as she gives witness to local enslaved Africans and the money trail that brought them here.

Free and open to the public, the program will begin following a short monthly business meeting at 7 PM in the Canterbury Town Hall Community Room, 1 Municipal Drive.
