The Frederick Lee Lectures: Sugar, Slavery, and Social Justice

March 14 @ 4 PM
Presenter: Pat Wilson Pheanious

Former Connecticut state representative and professor Pat Wilson Pheanious concludes our three-part series with her lecture, “Connecting the Past to our Present.” Research completed by the Witness Stones Project revealed that her ancestors were enslaved in the Caribbean and brought to Guilford. She will explore her family’s long history in America, tracing her roots to patriots who fought in the Revolutionary War. Pheanious’s presentation will reveal the ways that her family thrived in the face of insurmountable challenges and became dedicated public servants with a deep commitment to serving our nation.
