Ongoing research investigating the lives of the enslaved people at Homewood in the early nineteenth century reveals that men, women, and children inhabited unexpected spaces. From destroyed dwellings to the extant rooms of Homewood and the carriage house, Abby Schreiber will discuss the conditions in which people lived and worked, carried on their family lives, and spent their time. A lecturer at the National Institute of American History and Democracy at the College of William & Mary, Schreiber is a consulting researcher for the Enslaved at Homewood project, supported by the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority.

5:30 p.m. Reception at Homewood Museum
6:30 p.m. Lecture at Gilman Hall (in Room 50, the Marjorie M. Fisher Hall)
