"How Do You Remember the Days of Slavery?"
Stanford Department of History
Harvard historian Vincent Brown will be presenting on two work-in-progress documentary projects, both connected to the stories he uncovered in his hit 2020 book Tacky's Revolt: The Story of an Atlantic Slave War. "How Do You Remember the Days of Slavery?" explores Brown's journey to Jamaica to become involved in the commemoration of a holiday that canonizes one of the leaders of the uprising. "Contested Histories" explores Brown's involvement in heated transnational debates over how we remember our past.
