  • 5pm: Readings by Shawn-Herbert Felton

For Shawn, art is therapy. He is thrilled to be at The Langston Hughes House sharing his work.

Agnes Gomillion’s debut, The Record Keeper, is the first of a series of Afro-futuristic novels that trace and illuminate an African-American family’s journey from slavery to relative freedom in the American South. The book speaks to the modern and future civil rights movement. It’s an epic adventure that physically takes place in Georgia 200 years from now.

A reinvention of the life of Frederick Douglass…examining past and present race relations… The Record Keeper is about freedom from slavery and is being published to coincide with Juneteenth, the American holiday that commemorates the end of slavery in the United States.
