Looking forward to taking part in the 2021 Slave Dwelling Project Conference, “Changing Narratives in Changing Times,” September 30 – October 2 . I’ll be talking about changing narratives in my own family’s story on Friday, October 1, at 10:30 am EDT, in a collaborative session with colleagues Karen Branan and Angela Dickey. At noon the same day, I’ll join fellow SDP board member Frederick Deshon Murphy in a keynote presentation/conversation by and with Susan Neiman on what we can learn from the Germans about confronting racism in America and our own “memory of evil.”

Congrats to the Fulton Theatre on its incredible expansion and grand reopening in downtown Lancaster, PA! Join me on Thursday, October 21, at 7 pm (EDT) for a Zoom talk with on this latest chapter in the Fulton’s storied career.
