The Albert Wisner Public Library, located at 1 McFarland Dr. in Warwick, will offer a viewing of the award-winning film, “Where Slavery Died Hard,” followed by a discussion on Sun., Feb. 10 from 2 to 3:30.
Long before the Civil War, a battle for emancipation was fought in our area. The discussion will focus on the hidden lives of enslaved Africans in the mid-Hudson region in the 18th and early 19th centuries, the issues raised, and the documentary evidence of slaves in the Town of Warwick.
This program is free and open to all area adults, teens, and attentive older children. For more information send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Registration is suggested by calling the Help Desk at 986-1047, option 3 or visit www. albertwisnerlibrary.org/content/where-slavery-died-hard-film-discussion-regions-african-enslaved.
