      EVENT DETAILS
      Faith and Struggle

      The Baton Foundation, Inc., in partnership with the Auburn Avenue Research Library on African American Culture and History, will host a conversation between authors Randal M. Jelks and Tayari Jones (An American Marriage) about Black faith-based personal freedom. This program is free and open to the public. Reserve seats here. Program Narrative Neither the slaves’ whip nor the lynchers’ rope nor the bayonet could kill our Black belief--Margaret Walker This sentiment informs and empowers each of the four personalities profiled in Faith and Struggle in the Lives of Four African Americans. Author Randal Maurice Jelks shows that to understand the Black American experience beyond the larger narratives of enslavement, emancipation, and Black Lives Matter, we need to hear the individual stories. Drawing on his own experiences growing up as a religious man, he shows that the inner history of Blacks in the 20th century is a story worth telling. Read more here.
