Over the course of the semester Dr. Tim Trask’s Honors Second Year Seminar “Survivors of Slavery” has explored the narratives of many former slaves including Olaudah Equiano, Frederick Douglass, Harriet Jacobs, Sojourner Truth, and Booker T. Washington. On Friday, May 1st Dr. Trask and students in this Second Year Seminar traveled to Boston to see sites along the Black Heritage Trail, including the 54th Regiment Memorial, George Middleton House, and Phillips School. Other destinations while on the trip included the Museum of African American History, African Meeting House, and Phillis Wheatley statue.
