What: Lunch & Learn: Recovering Lost Ancestry

What: Lunch & Learn: Recovering Lost Ancestry
For decades, Agnes Kane Callum has written and published about Maryland’s African American history. Tragically, more than 25 years of genealogical research was lost in a fire in 1996. Then 70, this historian and granddaughter of a Maryland slave began the slow process of reconstructing lost knowledge. Callum, 86, and her daughter, Martina Callum, will share their stories.
