Among the highlights of Castleberry Hill’s monthly Art Stroll downtown on Friday (10/8) are a book and art exhibit that have been paired in programs at Savannah’s Ralph Mark Gilbert Civil Rights Museum and the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial Library in Washington.
The Castleberry Point lofts will present Atlanta author Doug Blackmon, whose “Slavery by Another Name: The Re-enslavement of Black People in America from the Civil War to World War II” won a 2009 Pulitzer Prize, and former Atlantan Robert Morris, whose multi-media pieces depict re-enslavement.
Wine tasting at Wine Shoe at 6 p.m. ($10); book-singing and art opening at 7 p.m. (free). 327 Nelson St., Atlanta. 404-688-9900, http://castleberryhill.org.
