Celebrating Blackbeard: But Should We?

Event Description

The Charlotte Observer published a story questioning why North Carolina would celebrate a murdering scoundrel like Blackbeard? It’s a point well taken, and yet, most people are fascinated by North Carolina’s most notorious pirate. Fortunately, archaeology gives us a legitimate opportunity to satisfy our guilty pleasure!
Join us for an engaging lecture to help us celebrate the arrival of the Queen Anne's Revenge exhibit! Our lecturer is Dr. Charles Ewen from East Carolina University who will be speaking on the topic: "Celebrating Blackbeard: But Should We?"
Located at the 1767 Chowan County Courthouse, Admission FREE.
