Finding Jesse: A Fugitive from Slavery in Vermont
Cambridge Historical Society
“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.
