Join Storyteller and Historical Character Interpreter Sheila Arnold on Thursday, March 23rd as she presents The Life of Mary Johnson: Indentured Servant to Free Black in 17th Century Virginia. Mary and her husband Anthony Johnson were among the earliest Africans to arrive in Virginia in 1621-22 at a time when most laborers—black and white—worked in indentured servitude. After twelve years on a Tidewater tobacco plantation, the Johnsons gained their freedom and settled with their four children in Northampton County on the Eastern Shore where they owned 250 acres, cattle, and even had their own indentured servants. Mary tells of her life and the stories she heard from her husband about coming to Jamestown, the bloody Middle Plantation massacre, and the growing movement in the colonies toward racially-defined lifelong slavery.This historical presentation will take place at Rappahannock Westminster-Canterbury in Irvington at 7pm.
