To celebrate Black History Month, Dean Melanie Woodin, Faculty of Arts & Science, invites everyone to hear distinguished historian and Harvard Professor Vincent Brown on “The Coromantee War: Charting the Course of an Atlantic Slave Revolt”. Professor Melanie Newton from the Department of History will moderate the discussion. 

The Jamaican Coromantee War of 1760-1761 shows how the turmoil of enslavement, which ruptured systems of social authority and cultural continuity among Africans, figured the development of enslaved militancy as it originated, traveled, took root, and germinated in far-flung contexts.
