Book Discussion: All That She Carried
Thursday, 6:00pm

Locust Grove is hosting a discussion of All That She Carried: The Journey of Ashley’s Sack, a Black Family Keepsake by renowned historian Tiya Miles. All That She Carried chronicles the journey of Ashley, who was sold away from her mother at the age of nine. Her parting gift from her mother Rose was a sack containing a tattered dress, three pecans, and a braid of Rose's hair, which would be passed down to her granddaughter Ruth, who embroidered their story upon the sack. Join us as we discuss this harrowing story of love, resilience, and the preservation of family identity.

The discussion will take place at 6:00 pm in the Auditorium at Locust Grove and will be lead by Brandi Lashay Threatt, Locust Grove's Museum Theatre Director. Refreshments will be provided.

This discussion is a part of a series by the Louisville Coalition on the History of Enslavement and is free to the public thanks to a generous donation from sponsors Guy and Elizabeth Montgomery.
