Jarvis Green, founder of the Black theater company JAG Productions, will speak about the afterlives and legacies of the transatlantic slave trade during this month’s presentation from the Vermont Humanities Council. Green will explore how Black theater artists — and Black queer and feminist artists more broadly — have created ways to honor this history and heal ancestral trauma.

The First Wednesday Lecture series, a collaboration between the Vermont Humanities Council and Vermont public libraries, will be delivered via Zoom. The virtual talk will be presented Wednesday at 7 p.m.

To register for the live event, which includes an opportunity for questions and answers by attendees, go to https://www.vermonthumanities.org/event/atlantic-is-a-sea-of-bones/.

The Vermont Humanities Council’s First Wednesdays series is held every month from October through May in nine communities throughout Vermont.
