December 4, 2012 – Hour 2


We take you back to summer with a panel I moderated at the Baltimore Book Festival. Hosted by the City Lit Project, the panel titled “Writing About Family, Searching for Self” grappled with the complexity of race, culture, and American history.
Author Lawrence P. Jackson, professor of English and African-American Studies at Emory University discusses his latest book, My Father’s Name: A Black Virginia Family after the Civil War. Then, W. Ralph Eubanks, Director of Publishing at the Library of Congress discusses his most recent book The House at the End of the Road: The Story of Three Generations of an Interracial Family in the American South.
