Enlightenment v. Enslavement: Interpreting Gabriel Duvall's Library
Thursday, October 21, 2021
Join Marietta's assistant curator Katherine Brodt as she introduces the new exhibit “Enlightenment v. Enslavement” opening in the Duvall Law Office and help her to explore conflicting themes in Gabriel Duvall's ideology. Gabriel Duvall owned nearly 1,000 books. Excerpts from his notebooks reveal his interest in law, politics, history, philosophy, classics, and religion. But what do Duvall's books tell us about him as a person? Do they help explain how Duvall and his contemporaries, men who supposedly believed in the right to freedom, could enslave hundreds of people in their lifetimes?
