Co-presented with the NORTHWEST AFRICAN AMERICAN MUSEUM. We are delighted to help present and promote this appearance by distinguished Seattle author Andrew Ward. His books have covered much terrain, but his most recent—Dark Midnight When I Rise: The Story of the Fisk Jubilee Singers and River Run Red: The Fort Pillow Massacre in the American Civil War—have focused on aspects of U.S. history. He is at the new Northwest African American Museum tonight with his newest, The Slaves' War: The Civil War in the Words of Former Slaves (Houghton Mifflin). "A riveting book about the most important event in our history, from the perspective of those most affected by its outcome. In this most readable and compelling of narratives, the most neglected of participants, and their ancient and honorable struggle, are in the foreground where they should be—an antidote to all the mythologizing that has over the years smothered this moral tale." - Ken Burns. Free, with admission to the Museum ($6 adults/$4 seniors & students/members free). If you have not yet visited this new museum, this is an excellent opportunity. The Northwest African American Museum is located at 2300 South Massachusetts. For more information, please see www.naamnw.org, call (206) 518-6000 or call Elliott Bay at (206) 624-6600. (KingRat)
