Montpelier, VT – The Vermont Historical Society will address the important topics of racism and slavery in early Vermont as University of Vermont’s Professor Harvey Amani Whitfield takes the stage to talk about his research. Whitfield will offer his interpretation of the meaning of freedom for black people in Vermont during the first three decades. Whitfield’s research is the basis for his forthcoming book, The Problem of Slavery in Early Vermont, 1777-1810, to be published by the Society in February 2014.

This commemoration of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. will be held at two locations on January 20, 2014: the Vermont History Museum at 109 State Street in Montpelier at 12:00 noon, and at 7:00 pm at the Memorial Lounge of the Waterman Building on the UVM campus in Burlington.

The public is welcome to attend free of charge. Call Amanda Gustin at (802) 828-2180 for more information or check online:
