The Same Principle Lives in Us People of African Descent in the American Revolution, Princeton Public Library

Wednesday February 10, 2021
7:00 PM

American Revolutionaries struggled with a key question: Would the words of the Declaration of Independence, that “all men are created equal,” apply to all people?

From the outbreak of the Revolution, people of African descent asked and answered this question through their words and actions. In this talk, offered by the Museum of the American Revolution, hear the stories and explore the objects used at the Museum to help imagine what the Revolution was like for Phillis Wheatley, Elizabeth Freeman, James Forten, Harry Washington and others. Registration is required for this program. Registrants will receive the Zoom link to access the program on the morning of the program.
