The Manumit is a public work of the Periwinkle Humanities Initiative. Our mission is to encourage public discourse on contemporary issues shaped by underrepresented and insufficiently documented historical narratives. The blog brings together a diverse group of thinkers who revive forgotten stories from the past, and consider how these stories shape the world we live in today. The Manumit will be available on the Apple News Channel.
