Gather At The Table
The Healing Journey Of A Daughter Of Slavery And A Son Of The Slave Trade
THOMAS NORMAN DEWOLF AND SHARON LESLIE MORGAN
A chronicle of a journey of understanding and racial reconociliation in which a European American man from rural Oregon who descends from a slave trading dynasty and an African American woman from Chicago's South Side, descended on both sides from slaves, travel thousands of miles together visiting historic sites and spending time with each other's families to learn how the lingering trauma of slavery has shaped their lives. Arduous and sometimes uncomfortable in its exploration of painful truths, this book is nonetheless a testament to the possibilities that open up when people commit to truth, justice, and reconciliation.
