Our Next Historical Society Program
Our programs are held once a Month. The next program is:
"The Piatt Family & Slavery"
2 pm, Sunday February 25, 2018
at the Museum
The Champaign County Historical Society will sponsor a program entitled “Generational Shifts: Attitudes About Slavery & the Anti-Slavery Movement” presented by Logan Boggs, Amanda Goodwin, and Margaret Piatt.
The source of the discussion will be the attitudes and experiences of the well-known Piatt family as they confronted the institution of slavery and the abolition movement of the 19th century. Participants in sub-groups will investigate primary sources as provided then rejoin the assembly for general discussion.
This particular event will be in the form of a workshop, which will be a new format for us.
This program is also sponsored by The Mac-A-Cheek Foundation for the Humanities and Piatt Castles with support from the Mary Eleanor Morris Fund of the Columbus Foundation and is free to the public.
The Mission of the Society is to promote education of the history of Champaign County and to administer the collection and the display of artifacts, documents, and other historical resources from all of Champaign County.
