Landmark Lecture: Unhappy Separations
This lecture will explore the experiences of people like Sall Twine, who was assigned to the Peters with her four young children while her husband, George, was emancipated; and Ralph Anderson, who ran away from Peter family property and sought refuge with his free father. Jessie MacLeod, Associate Curator of George Washington's Mount Vernon, presents a Landmark Lecture about their stories, which reveal the pain, resilience and resistance of those whose lives were inextricably bound to the Washington and Custis families.
Admission is free/pay what you can, with donations welcome. Doors open at 6 p.m., lecture begins at 6:30 p.m.
