Virtual Book Talk – How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning With the History of Slavery Across America

July 27 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

This program is free and open to the public.

In the breadth of work created during the Great Depression, the Federal Writers’ Project interviewed formerly enslaved people, marking the first major collection of oral histories about slavery in America.

JMM will explore this intriguing collection and more, with author Clint Smith, as he discusses his debut work of nonfiction How the Word Is Passed: A Reckoning With the History of Slavery Across America, a revealing, contemporary portrait of America as a slave-owning nation. Smith will be in conversation with Reggie Jackson of Nurturing Diversity Partners, a Milwaukee-based organization that provides education, training, and consulting services to foster diversity, inclusion, and equity within institutions and communities.
