Conversations on 1619 Series "Convict Leasing"
Location:
Global Hub
Sponsored by:
Global Studies Center along with Department of Africana Studies
See Details

In 1619 a ship carrying 20-some enslaved Africans arrived in British North America. In commemoration of the 400th anniversary of that history-shaping event, the Department of Africana Studies and the Global Studies Center will host Conversations on 1619. Too many Americans are ignorant or ill-informed about the history of slavery and enslavement, and there are too few opportunities to have frank conversations about it. Events, aimed at Pitt undergrads but open to all members of the Pitt community, provide a space for informed, moderated discussion of topics related to slavery, whiteness, racism, and the making of our country.
