Join Nonfiction/Social History author Donya Williams, for the official release party of "Comes to The Light: Learning About the Entangled Families of Edgefield, South Carolina".

Her family was thought of as being a part of the Black Elite families during what Donya calls Washington DCs personal Harlem Renaissance era. She is the Granddaughter of Jefferson and Annie Mae Yeldell, who were founding members of Greater New Hope Baptist Church and founders of Springfield Baptist Church both located in Northwest, Washington.
