An opening reception for Professor of Cultural Anthropology Sascha Goluboff’s poster series, “A Journey Through Brownsburg, Virginia in 1860,” will be held on Thursday 7 from 2:30-3:00 p.m. on the Main Floor in Leyburn Library.
In this poster series, a fictionalized Mr. Samuel Winthrop meets several important African-American men and women who lived in the Brownsburg community. While this narrative is a piece of creative writing, the individuals depicted are as close to historically accurate as possible in part due to Professor Goluboff’s use of archival documents found in Washington and Lee’s Special Collections. She uses some of the key sources in the display.
Beverages will be provided.
