Encountering Slavery and Race in New England ::
The Royall House and Slave Quarters of Medford
Thursday October 7, 2010 at 7 pm
Tom Lincoln, Executive Director of the Royall House, will present an illustrated talk on this National Historic Landmark and highlight the oft-neglected history of colonial slavery in Massachusetts through archaeological artifacts, architecture and narrative.
The Royall House and the slave-owning families that lived there were the focus of the book Ten Hills Farm, whose author spoke as part of last spring's lecture series on the same subject.
