2/14 – Booker T. Washington Slept Here: African American Politics in Indiana in the early 1900s (Indianapolis)

Speaker:
Dr. Modupe Labode, curator at the National Museum of American History in Washington, D.C.

Dr. Labode will examine how Washington’s visits to Indiana put a spotlight on the concerns of African American political activists at the beginning of the twentieth century. Many of these issues that African Americans then faced — including opposition to lynching, educational equality, personal safety, and free access to public accommodations — would become key components of the twentieth-century’s civil rights movement.
