Auburn Ave Research Library Book Talk: Chasing Me to My Grave
From the venue:
The Auburn Avenue Research Library hosts its first in-person, public book event since the pandemic featuring a conversation around Chasing Me to My Grave: An Artist’s Memoir of the Jim Crow South by the late, acclaimed artist and Cuthbert, GA native Winfred Rembert.
The event, hosted in collaboration with Charis Books & More, Georgia Humanities, the Fulton County Remembrance Coalition and Constellations, will host Patsy Rembert, Rembert’s wife of 46 years, and his co-author Dr. Erin I. Kelly, and will be facilitated by artist and curator Tracy Murrell and artist Charlie Palmer, to discuss his searing and critically acclaimed memoir and honor his legacy. Chasing Me to My Grave presents Winfred Rembert's breathtaking body of work alongside his story – he worked the fields of Georgia, joined the Civil Rights movement, survived a near lynching and turned to art in his 50s.
