What Happened Here? Surfacing Cape Cod’s Connections to Slavery and Colonization with Meadow Dibble

August 21 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join us at the Highland House Museum as we welcome Meadow Dibble on a discussion of slavery on Cape Cod. We will also welcome Steven Philbrick, who generously donated a document of the sale of an enslaved boy Hector from Jonathan Paine of Truro to Benjamin Collins of Truro.

Meadow Dibble, Ph.D. is a writer, researcher, and antiracist historical recovery advocate working to surface New England’s suppressed narratives. She founded Atlantic Black Box Project, a grassroots public history project that empowers communities throughout the Northeast to take up the critical work of researching and reckoning with the region’s complicity in the slave trade and the global economy of enslavement.
