Daisy Turner’s Kin
October 6, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Presenter: Jane Beck, founder of the Vermont Folklife Center
Time: October 6th, 7pm, via Zoom
Folklorist Jane Beck shares the story of the Turner family, a saga that spans four generations and two centuries. This rare account of the Black experience in New England covers the capture in Africa, the middle passage, two generations of enslavement, escape from bondage, and eventually a family farm on a Vermont hilltop. Jane Beck is the author of Daisy Turner’s Kin, an African American Family Saga, based on sixty interviews with Turner, the daughter of enslaved people.
