Book Talk: Exploring the World of Elizabeth Jennings Graham
Thursday, November 3rd, 2022
6:00 PM ET
For many, the civil rights movement began with Rosa Parks’ brave stand against segregation in 1954. And yet, few people realize that the right for African Americans to freely ride in streetcars was earned a hundred years before in a landmark case here in New York City.
Join a virtual presentation with Jerry Mikorenda featuring his recent book, America’s First Freedom Rider: Elizabeth Jennings, Chester A. Arthur, and the Early Fight for Civil Rights, to learn more about how this conflict unfolded. The freedoms Elizabeth Jennings Graham fought for—and won—underpin the civil and gender rights movements still being fought today.
All attendees are welcome. You will have the option to turn on automatic captions for this virtual program. Staff will share instructions for how to do so at the start of the event. Please email [email protected] with any questions.
