Remembering the Victims of Slave Auctions: The Healing of Charlottesville and A New Way Forward
Dr. Anne Bailey, author of “The Weeping Time,”, which details one of the largest slave auctions in U.S. history, and SUNY Binghamton historian, will speak on research from the archives of the Albemarle County Courthouse about the sale of enslaved persons in Court Square, with moderator Andrew Davenport.
Presented in collaboration with organizations of descendants, to memorialize human trafficking which took place in our downtown area and learn from the work of historians of slavery.
