Event Details

Inspired by the Witness Stones Old Lyme Project, which honors those once enslaved in the community by researching their histories and placing memorial plaques at the site of their servitude, four esteemed poets give voice to those long denied their humanity.

Join us in the historic Meetinghouse as the poets share powerful poems depicting the lives of enslaved men, women, and children, reimagined from the research of historian Carolyn Wakeman.

Co-sponsored by the Meetinghouse, the Town of Ridgefield, Keeler Tavern & History Center, Ridgefield Library, and Ridgefield Historical Society.
