Event Details

What happens when a White woman, Phoebe Kilby, contacts a Black woman, Betty Kilby Baldwin, saying she suspects they are connected through slavery? The answer is revealed as they tell the dramatic story of their meeting, sharing of family histories, and search for reconciliation - from Betty's experience desegregating her county's only high school to Phoebe's eventual question to Betty: "How do I begin to repair the harms?"  Books will be available for purchase and signing.
