SEMINAR - Slave Resistance and the Making of Abolition

Monday 17th July  - Anti-Slavery Australia will host a seminar by Professor Manisha Sinha, Draper Chair in American History at the University of Connecticut for a seminar at the UTS Law Faculty. Professor Sinha's talk will argue that slave resistance lay at the heart of the abolition of slavery in the United States, and that the abolition movement was defined largely by fugitive slaves and slave rebels who inspired abolitionists.
