Free Museum Presentation

It’s free museum weekend in Butte County and I will be giving a free talk at the Pioneer History Museum in Oroville. Please come and meet me, enjoy the museum, and learn about Alvin Coffey and Black Slavery in Gold Rush California. It’s a fascinating and little-known topic.
