The Center for the Humanities, in conjunction with the departments of History, RCD, and Religion, as well as with the CSRD and the Slavery, Colonialism and their Legacies Initiative, hosted a roundtable discussion on February 8th featuring special guest, Alexis Wells-Oghoghomeh, from Stanford University. She was joined by panelists Nicholas AndersenChance Bonar, and Kyera Singleton. The conversation drew upon Dr. Wells-Oghoghomeh's recent book, The Souls of Womenfolk, which examines the religious traditions and practices of enslaved women in America. 

The panelists discussed the various ways enslaved black women have been addressed in scholarly work. Each panelist brought their own expertise to the topic and Professor Wells drew upon her own research and expertise to expand upon the topics of enslavement, women's narratives, and the practice of historical writing. 

The event took place February 8th in Alumnae Lounge at the Aidekman Arts Center. Photos from the event available here
