The CFR is excited to welcome author J. Chester Johnson for a virtual presentation and discussion on his recent publication, Damaged Heritage: The Elaine Race Massacre and A Story of Reconciliation. A well-known poet, essayist, and translator, Johnson grew up one county removed from the Elaine Race Massacre site in southeast Arkansas along the Mississippi River Delta. He has written extensively on race and civil rights, composing the Litany for the National Day of Repentance (October 4, 2008) when the Episcopal Church formally apologized for its role in transatlantic slavery and related evils.
