Lecture: “Black Flags, Blue Waters: The Epic History of America’s Most Notorious Pirates” presented by author Eric Jay Dolin

July 18 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

$15 – $20

Set against the backdrop of the Age of Exploration, Black Flags, Blue Waters reveals the dramatic and surprising history of American piracy’s “Golden Age”—spanning the late 1600s through the early 1700s—when lawless pirates plied the coastal waters of North America and the Indian Ocean. In this talk and slide presentation, bestselling author Eric Jay Dolin illustrates how American colonists at first supported these outrageous pirates in an early display of colonial solidarity against the Crown, and then violently opposed them.

Reception begins at 6:00pm
Lecture begins at 7:00pm
