Lecture: The Weems Family Journey to Freedom
August 10, 2019 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Please join Peerless Rockville as they welcome Canadian historians Bryan and Shannon Prince, who will share the heart-wrenching and occasionally heartwarming story of the enslaved family of John and Arabella Weems. Their epic story involved extensive webs of slave traders, Underground Railroad operatives and abolitionists from Canada, Great Britain, Jamaica as well as the United States.
