Galveston was one of the 48 known ports of entry in the U.S. for enslaved Africans who survived the transatlantic crossing. The Middle Passage Marker is housed by the Galveston Historical Foundation and is located at the Galveston Historic Seaport. This marker commemorates enslaved Africans in Galveston during the late 18th and early 19th centuries, as well as the millions of captive Africans who perished during the transatlantic slave trade known as the Middle Passage. Join Joan Holbert Hubert for a discussion on the history of the Middle Passage.
You are welcome to bring your own lunch to enjoy. Lunch will not be provided.
