Ballybay to Alabama: from anti-slavery ethos to pro-slavery ethic
This talk, presented by Professor Nini Rodgers, will examine the fortunes of the Jackson's, a Monaghan family, keen United Irishmen in the 1790s and slave holders once they crossed the Atlantic to the U.S. It is intended to use this family as a prism through which to reflect on the problems of the day. Time scale - 1793-c. 1840.
