Anthony Cohen Speaks at Historic Synagogue 0 Comment(s)

Last week, Tony Cohen, Founder and President of the Menare Foundation, came by the Lillian & Albert Small Jewish Museum to talk about his and his ancestors' journeys along the Underground Railroad. We were thrilled to attract 50 people at lunchtime on a Tuesday -- D.C. and Maryland primary day at that!

Tony riveted our guests with stories about retracing the Underground Railroad, tracking his family's Jewish-Indian-African roots, and his work -- even with Oprah Winfrey(!) -- on preserving the Underground Railroad's legacy. Even though it was the lunch hour, few people left early -- a testament to Tony's skills as a storyteller.

If you missed it, never to fear -- you can watch it on the Forum Network's website.

We hope to see you at an upcoming program!
