The Healing Journey of a Daughter of Slavery and a Son of the Slave Trade
Coming to the Table is featured prominently in the book Gather at the Table, (Beacon Press). Authors Sharon Morgan and Tom DeWolf used the CTTT model of healing to build an honest interracial friendship over three years and across thousands of miles and twenty-seven states.
From their website: “Gather at the Table is the story of two everyday people from diverse backgrounds who are on a mission to overcome the trauma of America’s legacy of slavery and the lingering effects of present-day racism. Using genealogy as an undercurrent, they visited each others’ families, ancestral towns, court houses, sites of racial terror, cemeteries, plantations and antebellum mansions, seeking to come to terms with the history out of which racism evolved.”
2011 Nobel Peace Laureate Leymah Gbowee calls Gather at the Table, “an honest exploration into the deep social wounds left by racism, violence and injustice.”
We are excited about the book’s potential for inspiring a more honest national dialogue about our traumatic past and its remaining aftermaths. And of course we are hopeful that our CTTT Community will grow, as more people learn about us and join us “at the table.”
