(Nantucket, MA) 
The Museum of African American History invites the public to a free lecture

The Annual Bette and Frank Spriggs Lecture takes place at the African Meeting House, 29

Dr. Joanne Melish, Associate Professor of History at the University of Kentucky, will deliver
the talk. Melish is Associate Professor of History at the University of Kentucky, where she

Dr. Melish received her B.A., M.A., and Ph.D. in American Civilization from Brown

New England, 1780-1860, as well as a number of essays and articles on slavery,

Currently she is working on a book-length project whose working title is “Making Black
