History for Lunch on July 17 featuring Joshua Strayhorn

History for Lunch: Legacies of Survival - Enslaved People's Journey through the Civil War


Joshua Strayhorn, PhD, a Mellon Humanities Fellow with the National Park Service, will discuss the legacies of freedom seekers in North Carolina by highlighting how enslaved people used the strategies they developed during slavery and their knowledge of the environment in and around North Carolina that helped them to evade capture, negotiate their labor, and create freedom for themselves. 

History for Lunch is available in person and virtually through Zoom.
