Enslaved Africans to Virginia Planters: The Complex Journey of the 1619 First Africans

August 24 @ 10:00 am - 5:00 pm

$

In August 1619, a Portuguese ship transporting enslaved Africans bound for Mexico was hijacked by the English and arrived at Point Comfort, Virginia. Henricus interpreters will present and demonstrate through lectures and living history the circumstances, myths, and realities of the introduction of Africans into the lives of the Powhatan and English communities, focusing on English laws of slavery at that time and the blending of three cultures into one, especially the food, tools, and clothing.
