Returning the Bones: A Performance and Reading with Author Gin Hammond

Actor and author Gin Hammond will present a dramatic reading from her debut novel Returning the Bones. The novel, which explores the challenges of racism and antisemitism in the civil rights era, is adapted from Hammond’s one-woman play, based on the remarkable life of Hammond's aunt Dr. Carolyn “Bebe” Hammond Montier. Montier, the first Black woman to earn a degree in Psychiatry from Yale Medical School, was raised in Texas, studied at Howard University and in France, visited the Auschwitz death camps, and eventually settled in Cleveland.
