My new book, Gather at the Table, will be released by Beacon Press on October 9. My co-author, Sharon Morgan, and I will "launch" the book at Eastern Mennonite University in Harrisonburg, Virginia that evening. Gather at the Table is the chronicle of our shared journey toward racial reconciliation. Over a three year period, we traveled both overseas and through 27 states, visiting ancestral towns, courthouses, cemeteries, plantations, antebellum mansions, and historic sites. We engaged in deep conversations about how the lingering trauma of slavery and racism shaped our lives and continue to profoundly impact America.
We hope to inspire a national dialogue about the legacies of slavery and racism and offer practical guidance for individuals and groups dedicated to healing America.
2011 Nobel Peace Laureate Leymah Gbowee hails Gather at the Table as “an honest exploration into the deep social wounds left by racism, violence and injustice.”
