Narratives of Enslaved Virginians

Arlington Public Library Online event (see link)

Researching can be perilous, but even more so for Black historians during the Jim Crow era.

In the 1930s, Federal Writers’ Project researchers with the Works Progress Administration interviewed formerly enslaved Virginians to preserve their stories. Library of Congress (LOC) Reference Specialists Dr. Sibyl Moses and Angela McMillan and author/professor David A. Taylor will discuss the project, its legacy, and the LOC resources documenting the voices of enslaved African Americans.

This program is presented in partnership with the Office of 55+ Programs at the Arlington County Department of Parks and Recreation.

Registration Required. This event will be held on Zoom. Attendees will receive the Zoom meeting information within 24 hours of the meeting.
