VIRTUAL BOOK TALK The Other Madisons: The Lost History of a President’s Black Family

February 18 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

| Free

Join us for a virtual genealogical book lecture by retired physician and geneticist Bettye Kearse, author of The Other Madisons: The Lost History of a President’s Black Family. Kearse—a descendant of an enslaved cook and, according to oral tradition, President James Madison—shares her family story and explores the issues of legacy, race, and the powerful consequences of telling the whole truth. Part personal quest, part testimony, part historical correction, the book is the saga of an extraordinary American family told by a griotte in search of the whole story.
