Speaking Engagements

While I’d prefer to be more “in demand,” I’ve been fortunate to have shared the findings of my book with a fair amount of folks, from Lake of the Woods (near Fredericksburg), to the James Madison Museum in Orange, to the African American Heritage Museum in Loudoun county’s The Plains.
