Friday June 19 at 7:30pm in the FSK Hotel Parking Lot
In observance of Emancipation Day, MET will be presenting a live reading of Catoctin SlaveSpeak by Elayne Bond Hyman. Catoctin SlaveSpeak is a collection of narrative poems in the voices of enslaved Africans, as well as their enslaved descendants, who were imported to work at the Catoctin Iron Furnace in Thurmont, MD. The reading will occur on June 19th at 7:30pm in the parking lot of the FSK Hotel at 31 West Patrick Street and is free for all who wish to attend. Masks required, bring a lawn chair!
In the event of inclement weather, the show will be streamed live on MET’s Facebook page.
