Historian Rick Geffken will give an overview of the history and legacy of New Jersey’s two hundred year history of human slavery.

New Jersey was the last Northern state to outlaw slavery. Images and stories of the enslaved, Monmouth County slave owners, and the local Quaker Abolition movement are examined and illuminated by the influential early activities at the Shrewsbury Meetings and other Quaker Meetings in West Jersey.
