Join us as Dennis Richmond, Jr. discusses why he wrote a book and the critical components to his writing process. He'll review his research which began in 2008 and the genealogy inquiries which led him to Greenwich. He's a remarkable speaker who will also discuss parts of his memoir that focus on bullying at school, Historically Black Colleges and Universities, the power of history in 2020, and the next steps with genealogy and life. His memoir "shares the story of growth; from a young boy in Yonkers with a passion for history to a powerhouse advocate for higher education." Check out his recent memoir He Spoke at My School.
