Book Club for Educators - Until Justice Be Done: America's First Civil Rights Movement, From the Revolution to Reconstruction
February 20th, 6:00 pm to 7:00 pm
In the eighty years between the Revolution and Reconstruction, America’s free Black Americans helped lead the movement to end slavery and fight racist laws, seeking change through petitioning, lobbying, party politics, and elections. As Masur argues, their activism and their courage in the face of White resistance created America’s “first civil rights movement,” whose landmark achievements included the passage of the 1866 Civil Rights Act and the Fourteenth Amendment.
Join Pulitzer Prize Finalist Dr. Kate Masur and the ALPLM team as we read and discuss her book Until Justice Be Done: America’s First Civil Rights Movement, From the Revolution to Reconstruction.
