On Saturday, Oct. 7 at 6:30 p.m. at Alcoa High School, the Blount County Democratic Party held its Roosevelt Dinner.

This gives the reader a perspective of the slaves instead of only the slaveholders. In his presentation entitled “Reading the Bible in an Age of Protest,” Powery continuously inserted quotes from people who were formerly enslaved to represent his or her point of view. He explained to the audience that, although the Bible mentions slavery, a multitude of...
