Race & American Memory | Stamped from the Beginning

July 21 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Race & American Memory programs at Grace Farms examine the ways in which Americans comprehend and recall national history, and seeks to revisit instances, ideas, and lives which have suffered negative revision or erasure.

In 2017, Grace Farms Foundation will offer various touch points related to issues of race, its construction, and its sustained impact on American identity and moral integrity.
