Stack of books

This bi-monthly event draws authors who have written about the civil rights movement that include personal recollections of events that shaped the nation and impacted on the world. Topics delve into investigations, conspiracy theories, and historical accounts that have survived generations. The Book and Author Series is made possible by support from the Slomo and Cindy Silvian Foundation (NY).
