What do arguments about Confederate monuments, plantations and “critical race theory” all have in common? They’re all examples of how we continue to struggle to define the legacy of America’s history of slavery – and reminders that the past isn’t truly behind us. Join CBI Board Member Ely Portillo for a dynamic discussion of “How the Word is Passed,” a New York Times-bestselling book that explores sites from Monticello to Angola Prison to see how we’re reckoning with these questions. Author Clint Smith, a Davidson graduate, was the featured guest at CBI’s 2021 Stakeholders Breakfast. You can view a video of his conversation with Sonja Gantt at the 2021 Stakeholders Breakfast HERE.
