The Slave Wrecks Project Lecture

The Slave Wrecks Project is multi-national research collaboration among the Smithsonian Institution, the National Park Service, George Washington University, and several other core partners. The Project uses the search for ships that wrecked during the slave trade as a way to speak publicly about the  comprehensive impacts of the global slave trade in shaping today’s world.
Join David Morgan, Director of the National Park Service’s Southeastern Archeological Center, as he shares how this collaboration began, how the National Park Service has been engaged with it, and current efforts to foster it around the globe. His lecture will be titled “Using Shipwrecks to Bring the History of Enslavement into Memory”.
This free program will be held at Goodwood Museum & Gardens in Jubilee Cottage on January 10th at Noon.
