As part of the COMmon Read series of events, the College of Marin Library is hosting a talk with China Galland, author of Love Cemetery: Unburying the Secret History of Slaves - American Racism and White Supremacy. Though Love Cemetery is set in a remote part of rural east Texas, the story of Love—a historic black cemetery—is really a quintessential American story of land theft, racism, and environmental destruction that plays out in different versions whether in New Orleans, LA; Standing Rock in the Dakotas; or in the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean.
The author will discuss her book and share footage from her documentary film in progress, Resurrecting Love. Galland is the prize-winning author of several nonfiction works including Longing for Darkness: Tara and the Black Madonna and The Bond Between Women: A Journey to Fierce Compassion. Additional information is available online.
