Discovering the Past - A Personal Perspective
Memphis Freethought Alliance honors African-American History Month with a very special guest. Professor DiAnne Malone has spent years tracing her family's history from its roots in Africa, through slavery on the Lenoir Plantation in Monroe County, MS, to the modern day. What she has discovered is important to her, personally. It is also important to our community and nation.
Here is a news article from the Monroe Journal about her research.
