So Pious an Undertaking: Slavery, Religion, Education, and Virginia’s Bray Schools

Saturday, April 18, 2020 from 1 p.m. to 2 p.m.
Speaker: Nicole Brown
Tickets $15 per person
Light refreshments provided.

When the Williamsburg Bray School opened its doors on September 29, 1760, it was the first official endeavor in Virginia to provide education for enslaved and free African Americans. Offering religious instruction in the Anglican tradition, the varied perspectives on Virginia Bray Schools were often complicated and contradictory. Public historian and early colonial scholar Nicole Brown will explain the pivotal role these schools had on our understanding of the relationship between slavery, religion, and education prior to the American Revolution and the Second Great Awakening.
