Though "Love Cemetery" by China Galland is set in a remote part of rural East Texas, the story of Love—a historic black cemetery—is really a quintessential American story of land theft, racism and environmental destruction that plays out in different versions whether in New Orleans, LA, Standing Rock in the Dakotas, or in the Middle East, Africa, and the Caribbean. Ms. Galland will discuss her book and share footage from her documentary film in progress, "Resurrecting Love." China Galland is the prize-winning author of several non-fiction works including "Longing for Darkness: Tara and the Black Madonna" and "The Bond Between Women: A Journey to Fierce Compassion."
