Thomas Norman DeWolf, author and public speaker, will be coming to Rock Valley College on Wednesday February 6 in the Student Center Atrium at 12:00 p.m. to help Rock Valley College celebrate Black History Month.

Thomas is co-author, with Sharon Leslie Morgan, of Gather at the Table , published by Beacon Press in October 2012.

Leymah Gbowee, 2011 Nobel Peace Laureate, calls it, "an honest exploration into the deep social wounds left by racism, violence, and injustice."

Thomas DeWolf—a descendent of slaveholders—discusses how the legacy of slavery and racism has impacted lives. Gather at the Table is a timely, candid, and deeply relevant book that offers an engaging model of restorative justice.
