In his lecture, entitled “Slave Lives Matter,” Dr. Whitfield, professor of United States and Canadian history in the Department of History at the University of Vermont, will present several short biographies of Black slaves in the Maritimes, building on his current book project Biographical Sketches of Black Slaves in Atlantic Canada, which documents the lives of 1,300 enslaved Black people. While the focus of the lecture will be individual slave experiences, Dr. Whitfield will also cover the broader context of regional slavery, including the details of slave work, slave families, and slave-related court cases.
