Michele Norris - The Grace Of Silence

Tuesday, October 12, 2010 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm
This memoir by the co-host of NPR’s All Things Considered delves into both family and national history to paint a vivid picture of the lasting effects of racism. Norris weaves memories of her Minneapolis childhood with events she learned of only later, chief among which was a 1946 incident in which a white Alabama policeman shot her father, who had just been honorably discharged from the Navy.
