10/31/07: "The Last Slaves of Mississippi" Presentation A Huge Success Fall 2007 RLH Speakers Series Presentation
The Office of Residence Life & Housing and the NSU Honors Program presented "The Last Slaves of Mississippi" as a part of its annual speakers series. Moderated by Dr. Khadijah Miller (Department Head, School of Interdisciplinary Studies), the event focused on one family's individual fight for freedom almost a century after the Emancipation Proclamation. The Wall family had no idea that slavery had ended almost 96 years prior, when in 1961 they were forced to leave the family who had enslaved them. Mae (Wall) Miller broke her family's silence when she attended a church meeting in 2001 and realized that the lifestyle her family had been forced to live was actually illegal. Unfortunately, this story was not uncommon in the rural South after the abolition of slavery.

Approximately 900 people listened to Mrs. Miller's life in peonage and learned about the research conducted by noted genealogist, Antwanette Harrell. The Office of Residence Life & Housing would like to thank all faculty, staff, students and community members that attended this exceptional event. For more information about Mrs. Miller and her personal journey, please review the following article (People Magazine, March 26, 2007):
http://v-103.com/pages/325891.php.

The event was free to the NSU community and made possible with donations from Chickahominy Baptist Church, the Office of Residence Life & Housing and the NSU Honors Program.
