Race & American Memory Stamped from the Beginning

Friday, July 21, 2017, 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm

The Race & American Memory series at Grace Farms examines the ways in which Americans comprehend and recall national history, and seeks to revisit instances, ideas, and lives which have suffered negative revision or erasure. In 2017, Grace Farms Foundation will offer various touch points related to issues of race, its construction, and its sustained impact on American identity and moral integrity.

The program hosts guest speakers and artists for public presentations, lectures and discussion following three Community Dinners at Grace Farms.

Ibram X. Kendi | July 21st, Grace Farms Foundation will welcome the winner of the 2016 National Book Award for Non-Fiction, author and scholar, Ibram X. Kendi, to lecture on the subject of his acclaimed book, Stamped from the Beginning: The Definitive History of Racist Ideas in America.

On November 17th, the series will culminate with Ask Your Mama, a special live jazz and poetry performance of the Langston Hughes Project led by trumpeter Ron McCurdy, commemorating the 50th Anniversary of Hughes’ death.
