The Unexpected Journey of an American Woman
February 17, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pmFree
The first in Grace Farms Foundation’s Race & American Memory series, The Unexpected Journey of an American Woman will feature memoirist and domestic violence activist, Dede Bartlett, and Yale poet and author, Danielle Chapman, discussing their timely recollection of personal family histories.
The Race & American Memory series at Grace Farms examines the ways in which Americans comprehend and recall national history, and seeks to revisit instances, ideas, and lives which have suffered negative revision or erasure. In 2017, Grace Farms Foundation will offer various touch points related to issues of race, its construction, and its sustained impact on American identity and moral integrity.
The program hosts guest speakers and artists for public presentations, lectures and discussion following three Community Dinners at Grace Farms.
