A Video Presentation to The Carter Center by J. Chester Johnson on His Latest Book, Damaged Heritage

On Tuesday, May 5th, Damaged Heritage: The Elaine Race Massacre and A Story Of Reconciliation (publisher: Pegasus; distributed by Simon & Schuster) was released. There has been considerable demand for J. Chester Johnson to present and discuss in-person his new book at major venues, such as The Carter Center, The National Cathedral, Trinity Wall Street, The Harvard Coop, and The Absalom Jones Center for Racial Healing, among other locations. However, as COVID 19 began to take its inevitable toll, it was not possible for Mr. Johnson to appear in-person. Alternatively, he has been presenting at locations through Zoom or WebEx. For example, Trinity Wall Street produced the attached video for The Carter Center, which was recently posted on May 12th by The Carter Center for its clientele – the date originally scheduled for Johnson’s appearance. A number of similar video presentations by Johnson on Damaged Heritage are planned in various venues for the future.
