TICKET SALES HAVE ENDED FOR THIS EVENT

There are pages missing in the story of American history. The lives and experiences of enslaved people brought to North American shores were irregularly documented in random assortments of lists, logs, photos, rosters and sales receipts distributed across the country.

In the new GBH News podcast, What is Owed?, we learn about those who have been gathering the bits of history in an effort to piece together the bigger picture of slavery and enslaved peoples' lives in America.

Join us in the Meeting House of the Museum of African American History in Boston to hear more and discuss the missing legacy, the underfunding of Black historic museums, and the challenges of preserving what is known about early Black culture in America.

GBH News reporter Saraya Wintersmith will talk about the podcast and moderate a discussion with MAAH's President and CEO, Dr. Noelle Trent, as well as Kyera Singleton, the Executive Director of the Royall House and Slave Quarters. Together they will visit the intersection of reparations and the needs of organizations striving to complete America's historic records.

Join us for a reception following the panel discussion.
