Join the Dakota County Historical Society for our monthly book club, "Books From Our Shelves."
April's book is "How the Word is Passed: A Reckoning with the History of Slavery in America," by Clint Smith.
Beginning in his own hometown of New Orleans, Clint Smith leads the reader through an unforgettable tour of monuments and landmarks-those that are honest about the past and those that are not-that offer an intergenerational story of how slavery has been central in shaping our nation's collective history, and ourselves.
