Conversations at Gantt - Engaging Freedoms: Defining and Negotiating Freedom During American Chattel Slavery
American chattel slavery is defined by free labor and the condition the enslaved population labored under. Historically, attention has been given to methods slave owners used to control the slave population. However, recent scholarship focuses on the role of the enslaved African in defining his or her freedom in private spaces, and negotiating for those freedoms in public space. Dr. Jonathan Hutchins, Assistant Professor of History at Johnson C. Smith University, will investigate the meaning of freedom in the Antebellum South, and the terms that enslaved Africans negotiated to gain access to equality and freedom in American society. www.ganttcenter.org

Free for Gantt Center members, $5 for non-members, RSVP required (limited seating).

Galleries will be open from 5:00 PM to 7:00 PM.

Conversations at Gantt is presented by Duke Energy
