Off the Shelf: Author Talk with Jessica Ingram -In her book “Road Through Midnight: A Civil Rights Memorial,” images of those places are interspersed with oral histories from victims’ families and investigative journalists, as well as pages from newspapers and FBI files and other ephemera. Ingram unlocks powerful and complex histories to reframe these commonplace landscapes as sites of both remembrance and resistance. She transforms the way we regard both what has happened and what’s happening now—as the fight for civil rights goes on and memorialization has become the literal subject of contested cultural and societal ground.
