WITH VOICES FREED AT LAST
April 23, 2022 @ 2:00 pm – 3:30 pm
The long-silenced voices of Connecticut’s enslaved will be heard.
Inspired by the Witness Stones Project, which honors enslaved individuals by researching their histories and placing memorial plaques at the site of their enslavement, four esteemed poets give voice to those denied their humanity.
Join us in the historic Meetinghouse as Marilyn Nelson, Antoinette Brim-Bell, Kate Rushin, and Rhonda Ward share bio-poems created with the research assistance of historian Carolyn Wakeman.
Reserve your in-person or virtual space today at meetinghouse.life.
