Looking for Lost Friends

June 22 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Family separation was a brutal practice in the slavery business of America. The “Lost Friends” advertisements published in “The Southwestern Christian Advocate” during the late 1800s and early 1900s by freed slaves looking for lost loved ones reveal a sophisticated use of unique African American rhetorical traditions.

Learn about these advertisements as well as how Findlay played a special role in the lives of two individuals during this time in American history. Presented by local researcher Ann Arbaugh.
