Thank you to everyone who came out to last night’s history faculty panel on “Of Human Bondage: Forms of Enslavement in Global History.” All six of Messiah College’s full-time history professors discussed the topic of slavery in their time and place of specialty — from Ancient Rome to modern-day America. The Humanities Symposium is always a proud and meaningful time for the history department to engage in and lead relevant conversations about the past and how it has shaped and may still influence our lives today.

Make sure to come out to Parmer Hall at 7:30 TONIGHT for the Humanities Symposium Keynote Address, as Dr. Kelly Brown Douglass discusses “Stand Your Ground in the Legacy of Slavery.”
