Register online today!

Zoom instructions will be emailed to you after registration.In Say I’m Dead, Dolores Johnson writes about the mixed-race experience in America, focused on black-white unions and inspired by her family’s experiences. In 1942 her black father and white mother fled Indiana’s Klan and anti-miscegenation laws to legally marry in New York, 24 years before the Supreme Court made mixed-race marriage legal. 

Say I’m Dead is a memoir of secrets, separation, and transformation, chronicling four generations who overturned forbidden race-mixing norms amid America’s persistent bigotry.

A brief business meeting of Friends members will precede the program. Click here for the slate of officers for 2021-2022.
