    Home Life Spaces of the Enslaved at Homewood


    Ongoing research investigating the lives of the enslaved people at Homewood in the early nineteenth century reveals that men, women, and children inhabited unexpected spaces. From destroyed dwellings to the extant rooms of Homewood and the carriage house, ABBY SCHREIBER, PH.D., will discuss the conditions in which people lived and worked, carried on their family lives, and spent their time. A lecturer at the National Institute of American History and Democracy at the College of William & Mary, Schreiber is a consulting researcher for the Enslaved at Homewood project, supported by the Maryland Heritage Areas Authority.


    This is the second part in Homewood Museum's 2017 Baltimore's Great Architecture Lectures, African American Dwellings in the Antebellum Period, presented as part of Baltimore Architecture Month.


    The lecture takes place at 6:30pm in Room 50, Gilman Hall, with a 5:30pm preceding reception at Homewood Museum; both located on the Johns Hopkins Homewood campus.


    1 AIA CES learning unit will be available
