Join the new Oasis book discussion series with a session featuring a memoir about Mill Creek, an African-American neighborhood razed in 1959 to build a highway. Gibson’s account of family life brings into focus a time very different from the modern-day, when many working-class African-American families did not have indoor plumbing, when sundown laws were still in effect, and reflects upon what it means that Mill Creek was destroyed in the name of racism disguised as “progress.” Read The Last Children of Mill Creek on your own . Then join us for a special event on Zoom where you can ask questions and discuss the book with the author.
