Please note: this event has been postponed due to concerns around the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (Covid-19). We are working with the event hosts to find a new date.

“Finding Jesse: A Fugitive from Slavery in Vermont” traces Jesse’s life from enslavement in North Carolina to freedom in Vermont. His story is told through letters in the collection at Rokeby Museum and documents at the North Carolina State Archives. This illustrated talk by Jane Williamson brings the narrative of one slave out of anonymity and explores his life and pursuit of freedom.
