All That She Carried: A Conversation with Tiya Miles

June 22, 2021 7:00 PM — 8:00 PM


Join MacArthur “Genius” Fellow and Harvard University Professor Tiya Miles as she discusses her new book, All That She Carried: The Journey of Ashley’s Sack, a Black Family Keepsake, a story about women, mothers, and daughters, who chose the profundity of love over dehumanizing condition.  At the heart of this moving tale is a rough cotton bag, given by an enslaved woman named Rose to her daughter, Ashley, before their forced separation.
