AA/Ypsi Reads & MLK Day Event: Searching for Jordan Anderson: A Personal Journey Into Race And Slavery In America

Monday, Jan 21, 2013 7:00p to 8:30p

Jordan Anderson, an African-American who moved to Ohio when he was freed from slavery in 1864, is famous for his "Letter from a Freedman to His Old Master," addressed in response to a request from his former master that Jordan return to help restore the farm after the Civil War.

Professor Roy E Finkenbine, Chair of History at Detroit Mercy College, is a specialist on slavery, abolition, and the Underground Railroad, and is writing a biography on Anderson and the famous letter.
