Entangled Lives: Slavery at George Washington's Mount Vernon
Mason Hall Auditorium, Johns Hopkins University
Baltimore, MD
Share this event:


The fifth-largest slave owner in Virginia by the late 1780s, George Washington constantly struggled with the tangled web of slavery despite his personal desires to eliminate it from his life. In this lecture illuminating the lived experience of slavery, historian Philip Morgan will share the ways in which master and slaves, whites and blacks, interacted at Washington's Mount Vernon plantation with special focus on the workplace, families and resistance.

Philip Morgan is the Harry C. Black Professor of History at Johns Hopkins University and one of the leading specialists on the history of the Atlantic world.

The lecture is presented in celebration of African-American History Month by Homewood Museum, the former country house and slave-holding farm of the Carroll family in the early decades of the nineteenth century.

Guests are invited to attend a preceding reception at 5pm.
