Sign My Name to Freedom
The GNV Book Discussion Group will explore Betty Reid Soskin's engaging memoir, Sign My Name to Freedom
. Now 100 years old, and the longest-serving ranger in the National Park System (some of you know her from the Rosie the Riveter Museum in Richmond), Ms. Soskin chronicles the challenges of living as a Black woman from the Jim Crow era through the Civil Rights movement to the BLM protests today. She carried her great-grandmother's slave identity papers in her pocket while attending the inauguration of Barack Obama. A very informative, satisfying read! Villager Patty Allen
will lead the discussion.
