Digital Discussion: Elizabeth Jennings Graham

March 25, 2020 | 12:30 pm - 1:30 pm


100 years before Rosa Parks refused to give up her seat, a 24-year-old black New Yorker stood her ground on a streetcar. Her name was Elizabeth Jennings Graham.

Join Education Manager Polly Desjarlais for a lunchtime discussion highlighting Jennings Graham’s courage and perseverance as she fought for equality, winning the first recorded legal victory for equal rights on public transportation, and creating a powerful catalyst in the fight for desegregation on all of New York’s public transit vehicles.
