The Beloved Margaret Garner Seminar

I am anouncing the new seminar/talkI am offering. For more information, click the following link or just read the post.

Using the pieces Beloved, written by Toni Morrison and its adapted screen play and musical, this seminar examines the pivotal role in which Cincinnati played in the capture, expedition, and treatment of African Americans during the mid 1800’s.

During this eye-opening seminar, you will discover the truths and fiction in the story of Margaret Garner, a runaway slave, whose capture threw Cincinnati into the thrawls of national news, establishing some of the bases for legislation challenging the definition that a slave was property.
