Slavery through the ages

The panel discussion “Slavery Through the Ages” will be held Oct. 29, 2013, at 6:30 p.m. in the School of Education Building, Room 118. Panelists will be Dr. Asa Eger (UNCG History), Dr. Watson Jennison (UNCG History), and Dr. Maura Nsonwu (NC A&T Sociology and Social Work). These speakers will lecture for a brief period about each of their research areas in an effort to educate the public about some of the many forms of slavery that have existed and those that continue to exist. By no means does this panel attempt to cover all forms of slavery, notes the UNCG Historical Society, which is sponsoring the discussion, or all periods of history – but the narrow focus that is offered will attempt to make students and staff more informed of the history of this practice.
