Tom DeWolf talked about the book, Gather at the Table: The Healing Journey of a Daughter of Slavery and a Son of the Slave Trade, in which he and his co-author, Sharon Morgan, tell the story of two people confronting the legacy of slavery and racism in America. DeWolf is the descendent of one of the largest slave trading families in U.S. history and Morgan is a descendent of slaves. Over a three year period, they traveled to visit each other’s families, went to ancestral towns and historic sites while engaging in conversation on how race has impacted their lives.
