Juneteenth Book Club and Lecture
June 18 @ 10:00 am - 2:30 pm$2
Honor the history of the black experience in America with two Juneteenth programs at Pottsgrove Manor. Join Professor Emeritus from Shippensburg University, Robert Hewitt, PhD, to engage with the history of black labor in Edward E. Baptist’s work, The Half Has Never Been Told: Slavery and the Making of America and then share with fellow readers in a guided discussion of the book. Registration is required for the book club and can easily be found on Pottsgrove Manor’s website.
All members of the public are invited to hear Dr. Hewitt speak on the importance of incorporating Black History into our shared narrative, in the lecture, “Together in History.” Deepen your understanding of the past and how the labor of exploited people is a part of our shared historic narrative. No registration required to attend lecture.
Book Club is Ages 14+; Book can be purchased at the Museum Shoppe at Pottsgrove Manor; Book Club participants are encouraged to bring a bagged lunch if also attending the lecture.
