Science and Philosophy Seminar of the Eastern Shore of Virginia has scheduled a seminar, “Slave Psyche: The Man Behind the Mask.” The free 90-minute seminar will be held at 12:30 p.m. on Friday, February 3 in the Lecture Hall of the Eastern Shore Community College, 29300 Lankford Hwy, Melfa, VA 23410.
John Harris Kellam will lead the Seminar and will discuss how the slave labor system of the southern region of the United States required those in bondage to employ a dual personality—one behind a mask that was presented to the master class and one that remained concealed to maintain identity and dignity.
Kellam is a life-long resident of the Eastern Shore.
These seminars are occasionally rescheduled on short notice. Prospective attendees are urged to check the Seminar’s website (www.SciPhi.org) shortly before a scheduled date.
Science and Philosophy Seminar is an informally organized group that meets more or less regularly to explore and discuss a wide array of topics, ranging from philosophical speculation to scientific research. All Seminars are open to the public. Admission is free.
