Learn about the experience of being captured, transported and sold into slavery at an important conversation with Town of Warwick Historian Dr. Richard Hull on Tuesday, Oct. 22 at 7 p.m. at the UAME Church, 9 Forester Ave., Warwick.

Hear about the origins of slavery and the horrific reality of everyday life for these people ripped from their homes and sold into bondage.

Hull is a Professor Emeritus of History at New York University and has dedicated his life study to the history of slavery. This is an emotional and oftentimes disturbing topic and may not be suitable for young children.

The conversation is scheduled to take place at the Union African Methodist Episcopal Church, a decommissioned historic church with a rich African American history owned and maintained by the Warwick Historical Society.
