John F. Baker Jr. discusses his book: The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation: Stories of My Family’s Journey to Freedom

Our Black History Month celebration in February kicks off with a special appearance by author John F. Baker Jr. whose beautifully written book The Washingtons of Wessyngton Plantation:  Stories of My Family’s Journey to Freedom has been hailed as “a groundbreaking work of history and a deeply personal journey of discovery.”

The Huntsville-Madison County Public Library's archivist, Ranee’ Pruitt, credits the book as being "better than Alex Haley's Roots.”

This event will take place at 1 pm in the Main branch auditorium.
