February 17 12:00 pm

Join MSV Curator of Collections Nick Powers for this online discussion about the life of Sarah, a woman enslaved by the Wood family of Glen Burnie in the late 1700s and early 1800s. When her legal right to manumission was challenged, Sarah turned to the courts to fight for her liberty in a case that ultimately challenged the system of slavery in the Shenandoah Valley.
