LAUNCH EVENT Unsung: Unheralded Narratives of American Slavery & Abolition


On Tuesday, February 16th, 7-8:30 pm, join us for the launch of Unsung: Unheralded Narratives of American Slavery & Abolition, a comprehensive collection “that should be required reading in history and literature courses,” writes Kirkus Reviews. Edited by Dr. Michelle Commander, associate director and curator of the Lapidus Center, with a foreword by former Schomburg Center Director Kevin Young, this new anthology weaves together well- and lesser-known documents by abolitionists and highlights materials from Arturo Schomburg’s seed collection. Unsung is the first in a series of upcoming anthologies from the Schomburg Center published in partnership with Penguin Classics.
