WHS Monthly Meeting
 
 
Karolyn Smardz Frost, who's a member of the Society, will be giving the inaugural Barry Moody lecture on April 16th, at 2 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Town Hall.  

Between 1759 and the American Revolutionary War, some 2,000 New England Planter families migrated to Nova Scotia and what is now New Brunswick. Of these, many came from Connecticut, mainly to the Minas Basin. They brought with them enslaved African Americans to help restore farms, fisheries and orchards left behind after the displacement of the French Acadians. Who were these Connecticut Planters? What contributions did the African New Englanders and Planters make to the early success of the area?

These questions will be explored by historian, archaeologist and award-winning author Karolyn Smardz Frost in the inaugural lecture in the Barry Moody Lectures in Atlantic History series. The public talk will be held on April 16th, at 2 p.m. in the Council Chambers at Town Hall. A reception and an opportunity to talk informally with Smardz Frost will follow the lecture.

Dr. Karolyn Smardz Frost is the author of I've Got a Home in Glory Land: A Lost Tale of the Underground Railroad, for which she won the Governor General?s Award in non-fiction in 2007. She is currently a Harrison McCain Visiting Professor at Acadia.
