A very special evening with two modern Southern ladies — Jaki Shelton Green (NC Poet Laureate) — joined by poet and novelist Darnell Arnoult. They will consider, in poetry and more, the relationship of two original Southern ladies – Mary Lincoln and Elizabeth Keckly. This will be the culminating event in the Burwell School Historic Site’s Elizabeth Keckly 2018 Bicentennial Observance. A celebratory reception will follow.
