Lunch and Learn: The Restorative Power of History

Friday, June 2, 2023

Please join the Newnan Carnegie Library Foundation and guest speaker Chris Joyner, an investigative reporter with The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, as he talks about his journey unearthing the trials of Carrollton sharecropper Clarence Henderson and its generational impact on a family and community. It's a mix of true crime and courtroom drama with a deep look at America in the decade following World War II when massive social change, political division, and deep paranoia threatened to tear the nation apart. Joyner will discuss how our shared history echoes in the present and the opportunities it presents for healing and reconciliation.

***Registrants are invited to bring their own lunch to the event. Doors open at 11:30 am. Program begins at 12 noon sharp and ends at 1:00 pm.
