Remembering Miss Kitty

/

Local lecture: Mark Auslander, a Brandeis University anthropologist, talks about the history of slavery in Oxford and the story of Kitty Boyd, an enslaved woman who once belonged to Methodist Bishop James Osgood Andrew. The free lecture was attended by around 100 local residents and Oxford College students and was followed by a discussion about the statement recently released by the Emory University Board of Trustees, which expressed regret for the school's role in slavery.
