Rochelle Riley Presents: The Burden

Join us for an important conversation with Detroit Free Press Journalist Rochelle Riley upon release of her pivotal new book:

The Burden: African Americans and the Enduring Impact of Slavery is a plea to America to understand what life post-slavery remains like for many African Americans, who are descended from people whose unpaid labor built this land, but have had to spend the last century and a half carrying the dual burden of fighting racial injustice and rising above the lowered expectations and hateful bigotry that attempt to keep them shackled to that past.
