The Jewish Genealogical Society of Georgia presents Professor Laura Leibman speaking about her book - Once We Were Slaves: The Extraordinary Journey of a Multiracial Jewish Family.

Beginning with two small portraits belonging to a Jewish heiress from New York, Professor Laura Leibman traced the family’s ancestors back to Bridgetown, Barbados in the 1700s. But instead of discovering an exclusively Sephardic ancestry, she found a much more textured and complicated story for this multiracial family.

This event is hosted by The Breman Museum and co-sponsored with the Atlanta Jews of Color Council.
