Cheryl Wills: A Family Story of Slavery and Freedom


In her book, Die Free: A Heroic Family Tale, award-winning news anchor Cheryl Wills traces the powerful story of her enslaved great-great-great-grandfather, who ran away from a Tennessee plantation to join the fight for freedom. From the Civil War and Jim Crow to the Great Migration, Wills’s story is as sweeping as it is personal. Join us for this talk and book signing.
