SPEAKER SERIES Slavery Where I Grew: An Exploration of Place and Past in Montgomery County

September 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Speaker: Local author and historian Robert Engelman
Come join us for an evening with local historian and author Robert
Engelman. Mr. Engelman will share what he learned from an extensive
project researching the history of enslavement in the
area. His work is an eye-opening account exploring
the history of the property and the people enslaved on
the land in the Rock Creek Woods neighborhood (just
north of Kensington) in which he was raised. He seeks
to identify the names of the enslaved people and tell
their stories. Mr. Engelman’s work brings the history of
slavery alive right here in our neighborhoods.

Attend in-person in the Classroom in the lower level of the Kensington Town Hall, 3710 Mitchell
Street, Kensington, MD 20895. Or,
