HRI-Sponsored – The Emancipation of Evan Walls by Jeffrey Blount
EVAN WALLS IS TERRIFIED by the birth of his ﬁrst child because he doesn’t want her to suffer the isolation he had as a child. Seeing his torment, his wife, Izzy, prods him to explain. He tells of being a black child growing up in the racially charged 1960s. Inspired to overcome the racism and class status imposed on blacks, he dreams of a life bigger than that lived by most everyone he knows in the small Virginia town of Canaan.
This group will be facilitated by Adrian Luxmoore
