Slavery’s Descendants: Shared Legacies of Race & Reconciliation
Speakers: Betty Kilby Baldwin, MBA., Phoebe Kilby & Lucien Truscott IV
6:00pm (PT); 9:00pm (ET)
Three authors from the collection Slavery’s Descendants: Shared Legacies of Race & Reconciliation, Edited by D. Ford & J. Strauss (2019 Rutgers Univ Press) will tell and discuss their stories. Betty Kilby Fisher Baldwin, and Phoebe Kilby, will share their journey of discovering their shared past; one the descendant of slave owners and the other of the enslaved, and how they healed together and created a program to tell their story of race and reconciliation called, “A Common Grace.”
Lucian Truscott, a descendant of Thomas Jefferson will tell his story of connecting with his Hemings cousins (Jefferson’s enslaved mistress whose descendants share his DNA) and how together they helped to reveal the true story of slavery at Monticello.
All the authors for this book are a part of the Coming to the Table (CTTT) Writers Group.
Elisa Pearmain, also an author in the collection, will host the program.
