Slavery’s Descendants: Shared Legacies of Race and Reconciliation
January 15 @ 7:30 PM - 9:00 PM ESTCost: $2 – $10
Co-editor Dionne Ford and contributor Catherine Sasanov will discuss this collection by writers from a variety of backgrounds — all members of Coming to the Table, a national racial reconciliation organization — recounting their stories of dealing with America’s racial past through their experiences and their family histories. Some of the contributors are descendants of slaveholders, some are descendants of the enslaved, and many are descendants of both slaveholders and those they enslaved. What they have in common is a commitment toward collective introspection, and a willingness to think critically about how the nation’s histories of oppression continue to ripple into the present, affecting us all.
