Book Signing with Rachel Swarns
(Book Signing/Discussion)

On January 16th, HU Alum Rachel Swarns will discuss and sign her book, "American Tapestry: The Story of the Black, White, and Multiracial Ancestors of Michelle Obama". The event will take place in the East Ballroom of the Blackburn Center from 6:00pm - 8:00pm.

About the Book: American Tapestry illuminates the lives of the ordinary people in Mrs. Obama's family tree who fought for freedom in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars; who endured the agonies of slavery, the disappointment of Reconstruction, the displacement of the Great Migration, and the horrors of Jim Crow to build a better future for their children. Swarns even found a possible link to the Jewish Reform movement.
