Morven is honored to welcome Dr. Cheryl Finley of Cornell University  back to Princeton to share her extraordinary work and book Committed to Memory: The Art of the Slave Ship Icon.  The day’s events provide an opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations surrounding the 400th anniversary of the first documentation of enslaved Africans having landed in North America.  Due to anticipated high interest, Dr. Finley will be providing an illustrated lecture and Q&A at both our 2:00 p.m. Tea/Tour/Talk as well as at 6:30 p.m.

Dr. Finley’s book will be available for purchase and signing. Light refreshments provided at evening lecture.
