Plantation as Mission: American Indians, Enslaved Africans, and Jesuit Missionaries in Maryland
Thursday, June 2
Plantation as Mission: American Indians, Enslaved Africans, and Jesuit Missionaries in Maryland  (Historically Speaking)
7:00 pm to 8:30 pm
St Mary's College of Maryland - Dougherty-Palmer Commons

People of American Indian, African, and European ancestry have been connected with Maryland’s Jesuit plantations throughout their history. Archaeological evidence of Indian missions in Maryland—however fragmented—contributes to a narrative of the Maryland missions that is at odds with prevailing nineteenth- and twentieth-century histories.

Join Dr. Laura Masur, Associate Professor of Antropology at the Catholic University of America, as she probes this often over-looked part of Maryland - and St Mary's County - history.

A pre-lecture reception will be held on the Terrace of Dougherty-Palmer Commons starting at 6:15pm.

The Lecture and Reception are FREE but reservations are required
