Nahum Hazard was only eight years old in 1839 when he was kidnapped from his home in Lunenburg, brought to Richmond, Virginia, and put in a slave jail for sale.
Nahum was one of countless free African Americans to be kidnapped and sold for profit into slavery after the Revolutionary War and through the Civil War. Most vanished without a trace, but he and his astonishing story survived.
Jeannie Bartovics will reveal the details of this story at our June program.
