I’ll be giving a talk about Robert Smalls and his adventures during the Civil War on Wednesday, November 15th at the Royall House and Slave Quarters in Medford at 7:30pm. I’m so excited to have a chance to share the story of one of my favorite American heroes, and at a site that works hard at explaining and illustrating the role of slavery in New England. And this site is the same town where I live!
Come check it out! (Admission to the site and the talk is $10.)
