Slavery had a profound effect on the United States’ development. Modern understandings and debates on equality, personal rights, and government authority were shaped during the struggle over this “peculiar institution.” In this program, we will examine the legacy of slavery and how that legacy has changed over the course of US history.

“Gaston County strives to make its programs, services and activities accessible to all. If you will require an accommodation we request that you contact our office at least 5 days before the event.”
