Refugee: Historical Stories of Displacement
January 11 @ 1:30 pm - 3:30 pm$89.00
Jan. 11 at 1:30pm via Zoom, enjoy this webinar entitled “Refugee: Historical Stories of Displacement.”
From fleeing religious discrimination to being kidnapped and brought in chains, learn the human geography of place and legacy. Discover the migrations of Native Americans, escaping colonial encroachment while taking up the transformative asset of horses. Examine the religious and economic emigrants and why they fled – as well as the nasty system of chattel slavery, revealing the extent of northern as well as southern involvement. How did the authoritarianism that caused this emigration to an unknown land, then manifest the same behaviors as their past despots? Lots of maps!
