GSV Fall 2015 Meeting
October 31, 2015, at Rokeby Museum, Route 7, Ferrisburgh, VT
Jane Williamson: "Telling it Like it Was: The Under-ground Railroad in VT".
This talk presents the evolution of a single site – Rokeby Museum – to explore how easily the mythological Underground Railroad can displace historical events in our understanding of the past. Jane has served as director at Rokeby Museum since 1995, where she has pioneered a more accurate and nuanced understanding of the Underground Railroad in Vermont and New England.
See the Museum's website at: http://www.rokeby.org.
More details will be posted as they are finalized.
