Heinz History Center, in partnership with the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center, presents an exploration of the Black family, a topic of study in many disciplines, including history, literature, the visual arts, social policy, and the culture of the culinary arts. The family offers a rich tapestry of images for exploring the African American realities of the past and present.
The discussion will include Christin Haynes, founder of Black Family Scholar; Dr. Jessica Harris, award winning journalist and African Diaspora foodways expert; and Dr. Eric Jackson, Professor of History and Director of Black World Studies at Northern Kentucky University.
The Bonds of Family and Legacy is free and will be held virtually on Thursday, February 11 from 6:00 to 7:00 pm. Advance registration is required.
