5-1-12: From Slave Ship to Harvard

May 1, 2012 at 7:55 am 2 comments

The story of an African-American family that’s lived in Maryland for six generations–beginning with Yarrow Mamout, who was brought from Guinea to the U. S. as a slave in 1752. Tom Hall talks with James Johnston, author of the book From Slave Ship to Harvard: Yarrow Mamout and the History of an African American Family.

He’ll speak about his book Saturday morning at the Reginald F. Lewis Museum of Maryland African American History and Culture.  His talk starts at 11:00.
