Following the lead of her own ancestors, Tufts University historian Kendra Taira Field's epic new family history chronicles the westward migration of freedom's first generation in the fifty years after emancipation. Drawing on decades of archival research and family lore within and beyond the United States, Field details lives and choices that deepen and widen the roots of the Great Migration, exploring how ideas about race and color powerfully shaped the pursuit of freedom. Dr. Field is assistant professor of history and director of the Center for the Study of Race and Democracy at Tufts University. Copies of "Growing Up with the Country," slated for publication on January 9th, will be available for purchase and signing at the event. (rescheduled from 1/17 snow event)
