Alexandria’s Freedmen’s Cemetery: A Legacy of Freedom (Book Coming Soon)

I am glad to announce that my new book will be out between late December and January of 2019. My book “Alexandria’s Freedmen’s Cemetery: A Legacy of Freedom” has been in the making since 2015.

I will be posting future book signings and behind the scene journey of finding descendants of the Freedmen Cemetery that is the backbone to writing this book. So look out for the next newsletter in December 2018.

Update – 11-14-2018: Today, I moved into another step in the process of the book. Amazon and Barns and Noble have started taking pre-orders for my book, “The Alexandria’s Freedmen’s Cemetery: A Legacy of Freedom.” The book will be out in January.

Also the book will be sold in Alexandria in January. I will be launching my book signing at the Alexandria Black History Museum on February 9, 2019. If you live in Alexandria, you might want to buy the book in Alexandria in January, some of the proceeds will go to the Alexandria Black History Museum.
