All That She Carried: A Conversation with Tiya Miles
June 22 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
June 22, 2021 • 7:00 PM—8:00 PM • Suggested ticket: $5.00
Join MacArthur “Genius” Fellow and Harvard University Professor Tiya Miles as she discusses her new book, All That She Carried: The Journey of Ashley’s Sack, a Black Family Keepsake, a story about women, mothers, and daughters, who chose the profundity of love over dehumanizing condition. At the heart of this moving tale is a rough cotton bag, given by an enslaved woman named Rose to her daughter, Ashley, before their forced separation.
