Speaker:  Dr. Brad Cross
Date:  February 19th, 2015
Topic:   The Daily Lives of Black New Brunswickers as seen through Objects

Household furnishings, kitchenware, tools and decorative objects can shed light on the daily experiences of ordinary people in the way that official documents can’t.  Brad Cross will speak about research he and his students undertook to explore the daily lives of Black New Brunswickers over the last 200 years.
