DuSable Museum in Chicago will host Morgan and DeWolf on Saturday, November 3 from 1-3PM at 740 East 56th Place, Chicago, IL 60637. The authors will share excerpts from their book, introduce a model of healing and engage the audience in conversation. The event is free to the public and media is invited to cover.
In Gather at the Table, DeWolf and Morgan speak candidly about racism and the unhealed wounds of slavery. “The legacy of slavery,” they write, “is a combination of historical, cultural, and structural trauma that continues to touch everyone in American society today... Racism is more subtle now that in the past, but it still exists. Healing will happen and change will occur, when people start listening to one another and looking truthfully at their ancestral experiences.”
2011 Nobel Peace Laureate Leymah Gbowee hails Gather at the Table as “an honest exploration into the deep social wounds left by racism, violence and injustice.” John Paul Lederach, Professor of International Peacebuilding at Notre Dame calls it, “An extraordinary story of an honest, meaningful conversation across the racial divide.”
