ASALH Bethel Dukes Branch Monthly Speaker
April 25 @ 3:30 pm - 5:30 pm EDT
Join us for our monthly speaker event! Attend our author talk and conversation with Damani and Ife Keene, authors of Clandestine, The Times and Secret Life of Mariah Otey Reddick
April 25, 2021 3:30pm EST
Damani & Ife Keene, college sweethearts at Howard University, recently celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. Ife is a twice-published novelist. She joined Damani in writing their new historical novel – “CLANDESTINE: The Times and Secret Life of Mariah Otey Reddick” -inspired by the life of Damani’s great-grandmother.
After years of periodic family research, one night he discovered stunning truths about Mariah. Those poignant realities motivated him to find more. Ife and Damani’s 2013 visit to her grave convinced him that his Ancestors’ saga MUST be told.
In an amazing paradox, during the years Damani was searching for her, Mariah’s photo had been featured on U.S. network television.
This event will be held online via Zoom.
