C-SPAN to Broadcast Lecture on Joel Lane and the Enslaved who Lived on His Plantation!

Be sure to tune in to C-SPAN 3 at 1:20 pm on Saturday, May 7, 2011 for the broadcast of a lecture originally given by Dr. Florence Mitchell on Joel Lane and the Enslaved Who Lived on His Plantation in February 2011 in the Visitors Center! That’s Time Warner Cable Channel 417 in Raleigh. We are so proud of Florence who is receiving deserved national recognition for all the hard work she has put into this research over the last two years.
