An Evening With 

For 20 years I trod the dark roads of racist ancestral history and produced The Family Tree: A Lynching in Georgia, a Legacy of Secrets, and My Search for the Truth. Then new roads appeared and I found myself in a country deeply divided -- both slipping back in time and taking deep, long steps toward justice by practicing truth and human connection and seeking repair both individual and systemic. I will discuss the latter both personally and nationally.

Find Karen's book, The Family Tree: A Lynching in Georgia, a Legacy of Secrets, and My Search for the Truth below:

Karen Branan, author of The Family Tree: A Lynching in Georgia, A Legacy of Secrets, and My Search for the Truth, is a journalist whose work has appeared in Ms., Mother Jones, Ladies Home Journal, Life, The Guardian, among others, and whose documentaries and tv reports have been aired on PBS, ABC, CBS, CBC, and BBC. Since her book was published in 2016, she has embarked upon a fascinating journey of uniting with previously unknown African American and white family, as well as working with a host of people nationwide, including police chiefs, to expose our country's racial crimes and work for change.
