  • This event has passed. Check back for the future dates.

Join us as Ted Freeman discusses his book God’s Free-Man, a deeply personal narrative that combines family and history. Freeman’s work challenges past perceptions that his ancestors—Harry and Kate Freeman—were enslaved when they arrived to co-found modern-day Auburn with John Hardenbergh in 1793. What is certain, however, is their central place not only in establishing the African American community of the new settlement, but in building it from the ground-up. Freeman follows his family through the generations as they left their mark on Auburn’s storied cityscape.

This event is co-sponsored by the Cayuga Museum and the Seward House Museum.

The book talk and signing event is free, although donations to the sponsoring museums will be greatly appreciated. Books are available to purchase at the event. Reservations are strongly encouraged!
