Two Men in the Crossfire
Feb. 01 2023

Begin Black History Month by considering the narratives of two men who made their ways to Cincinnati after being enslaved in the South. Although part of a free state, antebellum Cincinnati was not friendly to abolitionists and African Americans. Newly free, James Bradley enrolled as a student at Lane Seminary, and Henry Bibb came to our city as a freedom seeker. We’ll also discuss the impact their stories had on Harriet Beecher Stowe when she wrote Uncle Tom’s Cabin. This HYBRID format program will be held at the Walnut Hills Branch Library and also livestreamed via Zoom.
