Judith Garret Segura will discuss Our Stories: Black Families in Early Dallas, the book she co-edited with the late Dr. George Keaton, Jr. Our Stories expands upon two works published over 30 years ago by Dr. Mamie McKnight’s organization, Black Dallas Remembered. The book reveals the little-known history of some of Dallas’s earliest Black families and the communities they created. Copies of the book will be available for purchase.
