A Storm of Witchcraft: The Salem Trials and the Failure of Leadership

October 26, 2022

The 1692 Salem trials are infamous for being the greatest witch hunt in American history. What led to these disastrous events? As Dr. Tad Baker will explain, it took a perfect storm of factors, including religious discord, political factionalism, the worst weather of the century, and an abject failure of leadership.

In this virtual talk, Dr. Baker will unpack the decisions made by Massachusetts leaders, including Salem’s local ministers, the panel of nine judges who heard the trial, and the governor who appointed them. A professor of history at Salem State University and an expert on the trials, Dr. Baker will untangle the tragic tale of Salem’s witchcraft hysteria.

Time: 7:00 - 8:30pm
Live on Zoom
