Everyone is invited to a book launch for Bob Romer (Amherst '52), Emeritus Professor of Physics and local historian, whose "Slavery in the Connecticut Valley of Massachusetts" is just out from Levellers Press. This is the first history of slavery in western Massachusetts, where the institution was much more pervasive in the 17th and 18th centuries than most people realize. This work brings out of obscurity the many black slaves who lived in the Valley at that time.
The event, on Friday, September 18th at 4:00 p.m., in the Friendly Periodicals Room on the main floor of the Robert Frost Library, will feature light refreshments and a brief presentation by the author. Copies of the book will be on sale. (9/18/09)
