Discussion Group
Karen Branan, an investigative journalist, will discuss her book, The Family Tree, a true story of her families' involvement in all sides of a Georgia lynching.  She'll reveal how she got the story, including the role of dreams, and how the journey transformed her, as well as the ways the book continues to bring her together with unknown cousins, both Black and White.    

"I appreciate Karen Branan's courage and integrity.  It will take her and many more of similar character to truly begin the healing of our country, which still believes it wears the white hat in the country's melodrama .”
 - Dr. James Hollis

"A gripping story of privilege and power, anger, and atonement, The Family Tree transports readers to a small Southern town steeped in racial tension and bound by powerful family ties. Branan takes us back in time to the Civil War, demonstrating how plantation politics and the Lost Cause movement set the stage for the fiery racial dynamics of the twentieth century, delving into the prevalence of mob rule, the rise of the Ku Klux Klan and the role of miscegenation in an unceasing cycle of bigotry."
