Conversations at Noon: The Perils of Pennington

June 28 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm


Free
CT United States

Online Event … Join Andre Keitt, Greatheart Griot Storyteller, for a fascinating discussion of the life of James Pennington, author of the world’s first book on the history of the African American, known for challenging the statements of Thomas Jefferson on the “inferiority of black people.”

Before James Pennington arrived in Hartford, Connecticut in 1840, and became the pastor of the city’s first and America’s third Black church, he succumbed to the adversities that most Black men who want to be free suffered in early America and even today. After a harrowing escape to freedom, and a segregated journey through higher education, Pennington leapt at the chance to finally become the senior pastor in a city embroiled in the Amistad trial, the nation’s first historic civil rights case.
