Ahead of the Game with Arts & Letters: "Recovering the Voices of Enslaved Catholics in Colonial America"
A different game plan for autumn weekends. You are invited to join in discussion with Notre Dame’s most engaging faculty on some of the most pressing and fascinating issues of our times. Each lecture and Q&A is presented on a home game Friday. Visit Ahead of the Game for a complete listing.
Sophie White, professor of American studies
Eighteenth-century Louisiana was a Catholic colony, and the law required that enslaved Africans be baptized. Sophie White’s prize-winning research has revealed an extraordinary archive in which these enslaved Africans testified, and this talk will foreground how they spoke about faith and their relationship to Catholicism.
All lectures are free and open to the public. No tickets required.
