Dr. Erica Armstrong Dunbar, author of Never Caught: The Washingtons’ Relentless Pursuit of Their Runaway Slave, Ona Judge (2017), will be with us February 7 as we host a new event for the EmpowerWest city-wide book club.
The book club’s evening event will be held at Crescent Hill Baptist Church, but this year we are adding a lunch at St. Matthew’s. The lunchtime event will be a conversation with the author as well as with our own Speed Stodghill and The Rev. Whit Stodghill about what it is like for white people to become conscious of our family’s historical connections to slavery.
Tickets for both events are available on Eventbrite. The evening gathering is free of charge, as is the noontime gathering. However, we are happy to purchase lunch for you at the cost of $15.
