Body: 

Jan 30
Tivoli Turnhalle
7:00-9:00 pm

Join Facing History and Ourselves for an evening with Douglas Blackmon, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Slavery By Another Name: The Re-Enslavement of Black Americans from the Civil War to World War II. This groundbreaking work delivers a searing examination of the enslavement of African-Americans that persisted deep into the 20th century. In 30 years as a journalist, Blackmon has written extensively about the American quandary of race--exploring such issues as the integration of schools in his childhood Mississippi Delta farm town, lost episodes of the Civil Rights movement and how contemporary society should grapple with a troubled past.

Facing History and Ourselves engages students in an examination of racism, prejudice, and anti-Semitism to create a more humane and informed citizenry. Students tackle essential questions of identity and choice, justice and healing, and memory and legacy.
