‘Meet John Rollison and His Descendant’ Lecture

Saturday, February 4, 2023

In honor of Black History Month, a series of compelling special events and programs will be offered throughout the month.

As part of the Talking History Lecture Series, actor James Cameron will portray John Rollison, an 18th century York County, Virginia, resident and property-owning free man of color sharing his experiences during the American Revolution during a program at 3 p.m. Saturday, February 4. Cameron will break character to introduce Rollison's 21st-century descendant Helen Casey-Rutland. Together, they will explore what it’s like to come face-to-face with an ancestor through living-history character portrayal. Admission to the free public lecture is limited and advance registration is recommended.
