Driven Toward Madness: the Fugitive Slave Margaret Garner and Tragedy on the Ohio presented by Nikki Taylor

Author and Howard University African American history professor Nikki M. Taylor recounts the story of Margaret Garner in her new book Driven toward Madness: The Fugitive Slave Margaret Garner and Tragedy on the Ohio. Garner was a runaway slave who, when confronted with capture, slit the throat of her toddler daughter rather than have her face a life in slavery. Her story inspired Toni Morrison’s novel Beloved. Program free with paid museum admission: $6, $5/senior, $3/ages 6–17, Free/Ohio History Connection & NAAMCC members. 800.752.2603 or ohiohistory.org/naamcc
