Children's book author, L. E. Chavous, will be in our gallery offering a special reading of his latest book "Dreams of Our Ancestors." Be amazed as Chavous provides a glimpse into who the ancestors of African-Americans were and what their lives were like before the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade. This beautifully-illustrated children's book provides an easy to understand narrative that explains the rarely told truths of the many contributions made by Africans.
