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.
