Program Description   This program examines the African American experience in Virginia from the earliest sighting of Africans in Virginia in 1619, through the seventeenth century beginnings of enslavement to emancipation. In addition to the history of the institution, this program will bring a focus on African cultural traditions like music, family celebrations, and foodways; students will learn some of the many African and African American responses to slavery, including Nat Turner’s rebellion, the Underground Railroad, and John Brown’s raid on Harpers Ferry.
Program Format   1. The program will begin with an introduction and examination of the 17th century Atlantic World.
2. The audience will then trace the history of slavery throughout the first half of American history and examine replica artifacts related to early African American life in Virginia.
3. The audience will then discuss the end of slavery, through slave rebellion, running away, manumission, and the Emancipation Proclamation.
4. The program will end with time for a Question and Answer period.
Objectives   The participant will:
- describe the interactions between the early arrived Africans, the English settlers and the native peoples in 17th c Virginia;
- describe how the practice of slavery became codified through legal Acts;
