Rachel L. Swarns will present “The 272: The Families Who Were Enslaved and Sold to Build the American Catholic Church.” Swarns is a journalist, author, and associate professor at New York University who investigates the history of American slavery and how it shapes the nation today. Swarns’ most recent book, The 272: The Families Who Were Enslaved and Sold to Build the American Catholic Church, tells the story of the nearly 300 enslaved people who were sold by a group of America’s most prominent Catholic priests to fund what would become Georgetown University.
