The Norwich Historical Society is offering a free virtual winter lecture series based on topics from our Walk Norwich Trail system. The four-part lecture series is free and open to the public.
In this talk, Dr. Kerima Lewis, Professor of African American History at Emerson College, will examine a tradition that emerged in colonial New England during the eighteenth century when enslaved Africans elected their own Kings and Governors when denied basic liberties including the right to vote.
