Virginia Tech for Civil War Studies at Virginia Tech presents "Celia, A Slave" at 30: Revisiting a Classic on Zoom on Monday, January 24, 2022.

Originally published in 1991, Melton A. McLaurin’s "Celia, A Slave" revealed the moral dilemmas of slavery through the story of an enslaved woman who fought back against sexual exploitation by her enslaver. The 30th anniversary edition of this classic work includes a new foreword by historians Daina Ramey Berry and Jennifer L. Morgan, evaluating its significance in the context of twenty-first-century scholarship.

Join Drs. Melton McLaurin, Daina Ramey Berry and Jennifer L. Morgan for this free online discussion.

The event is free, but you must preregister with Zoom.
