“Finding Phebe” is coming to Linden Place.

On Wednesday, January 24th at 7 pm, Sarah Weed and Pat Mues will be presenting “Finding Phebe: Uncovering the History of Enslavement in Warren, RI” at Linden Place in Bristol.  Please click here for details, reservations are required.

As you may or may not know, Linden Place was once home to the DeWolfs who made their fortune forcing African men, women and children into slavery, most often on their sugar plantations in Cuba.  This presentation will be focused on the enslaved in Warren in the 18th century, though we are including some information on the situation in Bristol at the time as well as the plight of a young woman listed in a will in the year 1755.
