Book Signing: A Radical New History of Abolition

May 16th, 2018

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Join WHS for an evening lecture related to the new WHS exhibition “Remembered: The Story of African Americans in Westport.” The 2017 Frederick Douglass Prize winning author Manisha Sinha will discuss her book “The Slave’s Cause”: a groundbreaking history of abolition that recovers the largely forgotten role of African Americans in the long march toward emancipation from the American Revolution through the Civil War.

Manisha Sinha is the Draper Chair in American History at the University of Connecticut.
