In celebration of Martin Luther King’s legacy and in anticipation of February’s Black History Month, join us on Jan. 16th for a conversation with award-winning children’s author and illustrator team Lesa Cline-Ransome and James Ransome! Their stunning and poignant books explore the impact of the Great Migration, the Harlem Renaissance, Jim Crow laws, and more through intimate childhood portraits of notable American figures.
Parents, educators, and readers of all ages are invited to delve into these beautifully illuminated landscapes of American history. Find books to read at home or with your class that help foster empathy and understanding. Many stories involve young people migrating and landing in an unfamiliar place, carrying their home’s distinct food, culture, and music.
A Q&A session will be held after the talk. Registration is $10 at ashokancenter.org/events to receive the Zoom link before the event. Participants will also have access to a video archive to replay this event and others in the series. Catskills Conversation is a monthly fall and winter program of the Ashokan Center, an independent music & nature nonprofit which hosts school groups for Educational Field Trips and public events, including festivals and Music & Dance Camps.
