Juneteenth Book Club & "Together in History" Talk
Saturday, June 18, 2022
Honor the history of the black experience in America with two Juneteenth programs at Pottsgrove Manor. Join Professor Emeritus from Shippensburg University, Robert Hewitt, to engage with the history of black labor in Edward E. Baptist's work, The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of America, and then share with fellow readers in a guided discussion of the book.
All members of the public are invited to hear Dr. Hewitt speak on the importance of incorporating Black History into our shared narrative, in the lecture, "Together in History." Deepen your understanding of the past and how the labor of exploited people is a part of our shared historic narrative.
