Coming Soon


“An African American Family in Connecticut: From Slavery to Triumph” is part of Chester Village West’s Lifelong Learning Program, which includes talks about Hollywood icons of the 1950s and advice for maintaining heart health.

“African American Family in Connecticut” will introduce my amazing family to another audience: we have generations of nurturing women, the man who was coachman to a governor, a Buffalo soldier, and of course the always memorable Anna Louise James. I’ll feature bits and pieces of my books Can Anything Beat White?: A Black Family’s Letters and At Home Inside: A Daughter’s Tribute to Ann Petry. And of course there’ll be an update on the film project, Ann Petry and the James Family Letters.

The lecture will be October 18 (a Tuesday) at 4 p.m. at Chester Village West, 317 West Main Street. It is free, but registration is required. Call 860.322.6455, email Chester Village West, or visit the website.

Looking forward to seeing you!
