    Location: Albrecht Auditorium in Stauffer Hall (925 North Dartmouth Ave. Red brick building on corner of 10th and Dartmouth Ave.)

    Faculty showcase & book reveal featuring Linda M. Perkins and her new publication, To Advance the Race: Black Women's Higher Education from the Antebellum Era to the 1960s.

    From the United States' earliest days, African Americans considered education essential for their freedom and progress. Linda M. Perkins’s study ranges across educational and geographical settings to tell the stories of Black women and girls as students, professors, and administrators. Beginning with early efforts and the establishment of abolitionist colleges, Perkins follows the history of Black women's post–Civil War experiences at elite white schools and public universities in northern and midwestern states. Their presence in Black institutions like Howard University marked another advancement, as did Black women becoming professors and administrators. But such progress intersected with race and education in the postwar era. As gender questions sparked conflict between educated Black women and Black men, it forced the former to contend with traditional notions of women’s roles even as the 1960s opened educational opportunities for all African Americans.

    A first of its kind history, To Advance the Race is an enlightening look at African American women and their multi-generational commitment to the ideal of education as a collective achievement.

    Hope to see you there!
