Join the Cambridge Public Library as they host their 48th annual FREE MLK Day celebration with Dr. Annette Gordon-Reed, the Carl M. Loeb University Professor at Harvard and the author of many books, including, most recently, On Juneteenth (2021).

Gordon-Reed has received many awards for her work, including the Pulitzer Prize in History in 2009 and the National Book Award in 2008, for The Hemingses of Monticello: An American Family (2008). In addition to articles and reviews, Gordon-Reed’s other works include Thomas Jefferson and Sally Hemings: An American Controversy (1997), Vernon Can Read! A Memoir, a collaboration with Vernon Jordan (2001), Race on Trial: Law and Justice in American History (2002), a volume of essays that she edited, Andrew Johnson (2010) and, with Peter S. Onuf, “Most Blessed of the Patriarchs”: Thomas Jefferson and the Empire of the Imagination (2016). Dr. Gordon-Reed is the recipient of numerous fellowships including the prestigious Guggenheim Fellowship in the humanities, and a MacArthur Fellowship.

The event will also be lived streamed on 22 City View, the Cambridge municipal TV channel. Registration is required.
