Join author Joe Koper this Saturday, November 18 beginning at 1:00 p.m. at Union United Methodist Church in St. Michaels, Maryland for this important community conversation on the Isaiah Fountain case that took place in Talbot County in the early 20th century.
Koper’s award-winning book, The Isaiah Fountain Case, is the first detailed account of the mostly-forgotten story that outraged Talbot County, Maryland a century ago during the Jim Crow era. His book documents dubious investigative and judicial actions and raises questions about Isaiah Fountain’s guilt and the Jim Crow legal system that convicted him.
The program is sponsored by the St. Michaels Community Center and the American Association of University Women, with a light lunch provided by the St. Michaels Community Center.
Donations to the St. Michaels Community Center’s annual fund and proceeds from its Treasure Cove Thrift Shop, located on Railroad Ave. in St. Michaels, help provide essential human services, programs, and community events for people in St. Michaels and from throughout Maryland’s Bay Hundred area, with more at www.stmichaelscc.org.
