As Americans continue to grapple with the issues of race and racism in the US, a book called ‘Gather at the Table’ by Thomas Norman De Wolf and Sharon Leslie Morgan offers up a brutally honest conversation about race which few people in this country dare to pursue. De Wolf, a white man who hails from one of the largest slave trading families in the South and Morgan, an African American woman whose ancestors were brought to this country as slaves recount their mutual journey to understand how each of their lives have been impacted by the ugly history of slavery.
