Candid Conversations: Race & Reconciliation


Join us at the Masonic Hall for a Candid Conversation with Joe McGill, founder of the Slave Dwelling Project. McGill travels throughout America hosting sleepovers in slave dwellings and in buildings built by enslaved people. In this Candid Conversation at the Masonic Hall, McGill will discuss the Slave Dwelling Project and its origin, why slave dwellings matter, and how buildings built by the enslaved can contribute to our understanding of the issues of slavery, race, and Civil Rights. This will be an open conversation between Joe McGill and audience participants. A Sleepover will follow this event.

The Candid Conversation is free; the Sleepover costs $20. The Sleepover will be on the first floor of the historic hall and will begin after 9 pm and end by 9 am. Light evening snacks and a light breakfast and coffee will be provided the next morning. Restroom facilities will be available. Participants must be 15 years of age to take part in the Sleepover. Anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult. Participants must provide their own sleeping materials. to purchase tickets for the sleepover event, go to our website or email info@hfmhfoundation.org.
