Back There Then, A Historical and Genealogical Memoir

February 26 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Linda Crichlow White

Sunday, 26 February 2017, 2PM

Linda published Back There Then, A Historical and Genealogical Memoir in 2014 after discovering a manuscript her Mother had written about their family and realizing it was too important to stay in an attic or basement. Since then, Linda and her Mother have spoken to groups about the importance of everyone – the ordinary and the not-so-ordinary- documenting their family or individual history.

Linda Crichlow White, MS, MLS, and native Washingtonian, taught home economics in DC Public Schools before becoming a School Library Media Specialist in the Montgomery County Maryland Public Schools.  She has served as the Washington Representative for the educational and cultural exchange program, Operation Crossroads Africa, and spoken to many groups about the importance of sharing family stories. She is active in the DC Library Association, the James Dent Walker Chapter (DC) of the Afro-American Historical and Genealogical Association, and other community groups, and has been working since 2006 on preserving her family history.  She serves on the board of the Children’s Africana Book Awards and is considered an expert in children’s multicultural literature. Books available for purchase and signing at the lecture.
