What The Children Told Us-Author Talk & Book Signing

Join us for a compelling guided discussion and book signing event with distinguished author Tim Spofford. Dive into the heart of civil rights history with Spofford’s latest work, What The Children Told Us, and uncover the enduring impact of Drs. Kenneth and Mamie Phipps Clark’s legendary doll experiment on the landmark Supreme Court case, Brown v. Board of Education.

Don’t miss this unique opportunity to engage with Tim Spofford, learn about a critical chapter in our nation’s history, and reflect on the ongoing journey towards equality and justice. This event, facilitated by Leah Brown, Associate Director of Education and Collections at the Moton Museum, promises to be an enlightening exploration of the Clarks’ legacy, their experiment’s continuing relevance, and its profound influence on both historical and contemporary discussions on race and education.
