BOOK GROUP is now reading...
Wednesday, June 22 @ 7:00pm
This contemporary book is set in Boston and is about a young, black woman who has entered the world of editing/publishing. It’s a fascinating portrayal of the publishing world seen through this young woman’s eyes. There’s an element of magical realism that weaves its way through the storyline that makes this book and its themes feel refreshing and new.
New members are always welcome.

Story-time is held Monday mornings from 10:00-11:00am, with our very own Laurie!

AFRICAN AMERICAN SOLDIERS AND SAILORS IN THE REVOLUTION
Thursday, February 24 at 7:00pm
During this Zoom presentation, Glenn Knoblock will inform us about one of the most interesting aspects of the American Revolution... the role played by African Americans in the fight for independence.
Both free African Americans and those that were enslaved were key in manning state militias and Continental Army units, as well as serving on the high seas in the Navy and on privately armed ships. Indeed, their service to the colonies was crucial in a conflict that lasted nearly seven years. Prohibited from serving in military units and largely considered "undesirable elements," how is it that these African American soldiers came to fight for the cause of liberty, even when their own personal liberty was not guaranteed?
Glenn Knoblock examines the history of African American soldiers' service during the war, including how and why they enlisted, their interaction with white soldiers, service on the battlefields, how they were perceived by the enemy and the officers under whom they served, and their treatment after the war.
