Join Us for “The Remarkable Robert Smalls with Author Rebecca Bruff”
Explore why we should know and appreciate the life, legacy, and contributions of Robert Smalls with local author, Rebecca Bruff. Robert Smalls, born enslaved, liberated himself and others in a larger-than-life escape to freedom. After the Civil War, he was elected to state and then national leadership, and – among other things – helped create the first free and compulsory public education system in the country.
*Copies of Rebecca’s book, “Trouble the Water” will be available for purchase & signing at this talk.
