Join a conversation with the authors of two new books about Black women in U.S. history.
ABOUT THIS EVENT |
Scholarship on Black women’s histories is transforming our understanding of U.S. political, social, and economic development. New researchers are writing Black women back into narratives where they have been erased. When Black women such as Rosa Parks have been lifted up, our understanding of their real ideas and contributions has too often been shallow. Join this conversation to uncover the long history of Black women in U.S. history, and a deeper understanding of one of the most celebrated Black American women, Rosa Parks.
The discussion features authors Daina Ramey Berry and Kali N. Gross (A Black Women’s History of the United States) and Jeanne Theoharis (The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks, Young Readers Edition).
The talk is part of the Schomburg Center’s Conversations in Black Freedom Studies series.
