Recognizing Our Past with Daryl T. Hinmon
Tuesday, February 21, 6:30 p.m.
Lexington Park Library
Register for Recognizing Our Past
Join the Lexington Park Library in welcoming author, historian, and researcher, Daryl T. Hinmon, in discussing the remarkable achievements of formerly enslaved African American ancestors and their descendants. Anything of value is typically hidden by nature, or other people, and it takes work to unearth valuable gems that will increase your worth. True Black History is one of those gems that was hidden from our enslaved ancestors because the true knowledge of their history would have made them ‘forever unfit to be slaves’.
Daryl T. Hinmon is an acclaimed local author of two books: Slaves With Swag: The Negroes Your History Teacher Forgot To Mention and Black Gold: Remarkable Achievements of Formerly Enslaved African Americans & Their Descendants. A local author, researcher, and historian, the Library welcomes Daryl in discussing his works, his research, and his approach to understanding history, and how we, as a community, may better look to understand how much of American History is Black History, and the incredible lives lived by so many individuals not taught in many curriculums.
