  • Loyalty Bookstores 827 Upshur St NW Washington United States (map)

Join author and journalist Gene Meyer for his history of the black soldiers in John Brown’s Army before the Civil War. This largely untold story of the 5 black soldier who were in this ill fated raid on Harper’s Ferry is a deeply moving and incredible story about a grasp for freedom by those who had the most to lose, and gain, during this pivotal moment of the war.

Gene Meyer will be reading from the book, hosting a Q&A, and signing from his book at our Upshur Street location. This event is free and open to the public.
