Jerome Lafayette Narramore, a biracial descendent from west Castleton’s little-known Black community, presents the recently excavated Black History of his mother’s town of birth at 12:30 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 2, at Jeffords Center Auditorium.
Narramore will speak about the challenges of mixed-race identity, genealogical discovery, and how the conditions his ancestors lived in prevented him from fully knowing his own familial legacy.
Historian, genetic genealogist, author, and producer of the documentary "A Whiteman Walks Into a Bar", Narramore also oversees several DNA projects and is the lead curator of several DNA projects and curator of the Facebook group, “Black & Brown Vermont,” which is dedicated to crowdsourcing data about the Black and Brown history of Vermont.
