On the EWGS Facebook page today was a link from an article by Megan Smolenyak telling about an article in the Washington Post by Terrance McCoy on the Georgetown University sale of 272 slaves to pay off debts owed by Georgetown University:Link here ( https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/inspired-life/wp/2016/06/17/georgetowns-priests-sold-her-ancestors-into-slavery-heres-how-she-cracked-the-mystery/ )
This is a copy of the Blog post I did for the EWGS blog a few days ago where Pat Bayonne-Johnson met the President of Georgetown University:
EWGS President Patricia Bayonne-Johnson descendant of slaves that were sold by Georgetown University in 1838, meets with Georgetown University President John J. DeGioia at the Spokane Public Library. Read the article by Rachel L. Swarns of the New York Times. (https://goodblacknews.org/author/goodblacknews/ ) or the article in the Spokesman Review
Here is some pictures of the meeting:
