Central Standard

Civil Rights Pre-NAACP

On this Tuesday's Central Standard, we’ll learn about largely forgotten 19th-century African American activists and civil rights organizations that created the groundwork for groups like the NAACP.

We'll be joined by Shawn Leigh Alexander, author of An Army of Lions, Assistant Professor & Graduate Director of African & African American Studies, and Interim Director of the Langston Hughes Center at the University of Kansas.

Shawn Leigh Alexander will be speaking on Tuesday, March 6th at 6pm at the Central Branch of the KC Public Library, 14 West 10th Street. RSVP here.
