About this Event

Cristobol Colon sailed the ocean blue in 1492. One short decade later, we learn of the first recorded maroon -- an African man who fled to live among the Indigenous community in the mountains immediately after setting foot in the New World. While little is known of him, his flight sets off a centuries-long practice of African rebellion and resistance to the institution of enslavement across the Americas.
