Author, dramatis and storyteller Judith C. Owens-Lalude will present her first-person interpretation of Lucy Higgs Nichols as part of the Carnegie Center’s Lunch & Learn series. Wearing period costume, she engages the audience as she takes on the persona of Lucy Higgs Nichols by sharing Lucy’s thoughts, fears, and feelings during the pivotal events of her incredible life. Owens-Lalude will also be signing and selling copies of her book "The Long Walk: Slavery to Freedom", a harrowing but inspiring tale of Africans enslaved on a farm outside Louisville, KY who used the Underground Railroad to escape, and made “the long walk to freedom”. Lunch & Learn attendees are encouraged to view the exhibit "Remembered: the Life of Lucy Higgs Nichols" before or after the program. Bring your own lunch, drinks are provided. Free, but registration required (812-944-7336). Sponsored by the Carnegie Center, Inc.
