African American History Month Exhibition
In celebration of African American History Month, the University of Delaware Library will mount the one-case exhibition “Solomon Bayley and Antislavery in Delaware,” curated by Arline Wilson, doctoral candidate in the Department of English and graduate assistant in Special Collections.
The exhibition will run from Jan. 31 to March 3 on the first floor of Morris Library. An online version of the exhibition will be available.
The exhibition will feature documents centered on the life of Solomon Bayley (c.1771-c.1839). Born a slave in Kent County, Delaware, Bayley later gained his freedom and went on to become an author, farmer, and preacher.
