Finding Phebe: Uncovering the History of Slavery in Warren, RI

Monday February 26th, 7pm @ Weaver

Although the town of Warren, Rhode Island in the 18th century was surrounded by the slave centers of Newport, Bristol, and Providence, its small size has made it a footnote in much of what has been written about slavery and the slave trade. Building on the work of historians Christy Clark-Pujara, Ruth Wallis Hendron, Jane Lancaster, Joanne Pope-Melish, and Marjory O’Toole, Patricia Mues and Sarah Weed use primary sources – including wills, inventories, town meeting records, censuses and other documents – to identify the enslaved of Warren and learn their histories. Mues and Weed are co-chairs of the Warren Middle Passage Project and board members of the Warren Preservation Society.
