Conversations with Faculty and Research Institutes

Recovering Silenced Voices: Finding and Telling the Histories of Enslaved People with Professor Daniel Livesay, Ph.D., Associate Professor of History
Tuesday, July 21 | 11:00 a.m. Pacific
Millions of Americans suffered in slavery. Only a handful of them - Harriet Tubman, Frederick Douglass, Sojourner Truth - are recognized widely today. Historians struggle to tell the stories of enslaved individuals because they were rarely allowed to speak for themselves. This talk will focus on the lives of enslaved people who have not received much popular attention. It will explain what their day-to-day lives were like, what challenges they faced, and how they tried - and, at times, succeeded - to push back against their own oppression.Professor Livesay Registration
