The strange case of Millie and Chris

Millie and Christine McCoy were African American conjoined twins, born into slavery in America’s Deep South in 1851. They were stolen from their family at an early age, and trafficked around North America and Europe until being discovered on exhibition in Birmingham. This free talk by Helen Davies explores their extraordinary life, and focuses upon the sensational coverage of their rescue in the Birmingham local press.
