Life in the Shadow of Slavery: Freedom Found by the Manatee River

February 27, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

In the early days of colonial America, enslaved peoples seeking freedom could find a safe haven in Spanish La Florida. Archaeological excavations have revealed facets of daily life for the Maroons of the freedom-seeking community known as Angola by the Manatee Mineral Spring between the 1770s and 1821. Uzi Baram, lead archaeologist, will share the insights from 15 years of research and January 2020 excavations and follow-up laboratory analysis.

This lecture is to be held outside under an event tent.

This program is funded in part by a Florida Humanities Community Project Grant in partnership with Reflections of Manatee, Inc.
