*Second Annual Athenaeum Civil War Authors Series*
Three local Civil War authors.Three winter dates.
In celebration of Black History Month, Audrey Davis, the Executive Director of the Alexandria Black History Museum, will lead a conversation on the African-American experience during the Civil War. The lives of Contrabands in occupied Alexandria, how they worked, survived and succeeded in moving towards freedom will be discovered. As the only Alexandrian that consulted in the hit PBS mini-series Mercy Street, she will lend insight into the making of the show.
