This week the Regional Educational Technology Network (RETN), the Center for Research on Vermont's public-access television partner, will premiere the program "African Americans in Addison County, Charlotte, and Hinesburg, 1790-1860" by Jane Williamson, director of Rokeby Museum.

The program, which has a runtime of one hour, can be viewed on Comcast Cable on Channel 16 (both North and South) as follows:
        Wednesday, February 27, 2008 at 11 A.M.
                            repeats at                     8 P.M.
                            repeats at                    midnight

The program was originally presented as #211 in the Center's ongoing Research-in-Progress Seminar Series on January 29, 2008. For a detailed description, please visit the Center's Web site at <www.uvm.edu/~crvt>.

Immediately following each broadcast of Ms. Williamson's program will be a one-hour dramatic reading of David Budbill's play _Trapped_, which tells the story of Jesse, a fugitive slave who was sheltered at Rokeby in 1837.
