Time: 4:00 PM - 5:30 PM
Location: Pebble Hill
The public is invited to a book talk by Foster Dickson, author of
Closed Ranks: The Whitehurst Case in Post-Civil Rights Montgomery, on Thursday, February 7 at 4 p.m. at the Caroline Marshall Draughon Center
for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill.
In this latter-day exploration of the Whitehurst Case, author Foster Dickson reviews one of Montgomery’s never-before-told stories, one which is riddled with incompatible narratives.
Closed Ranks brings together interviews, police reports, news stories, and other records to carry the reader through the fraught post-civil rights movement period when the "unnecessary" shooting of Bernard Whitehurst Jr. occurred.
Foster Dickson is a writer, editor and teacher in Montgomery, Alabama.
The event is free, open to the public, and will be followed by refreshments. Books will be available for purchase and signing.
The Caroline Marshall Draughon Center for the Arts & Humanities at Pebble Hill is located at 101 S. Debardeleben Street, Auburn. For more information on the program, call 334-844-4903
