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

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.
