What’s Happening at the Pelham Public Library

Black Citizenship in the Age of Jim Crow with the New-York Historical Society

Thursday, February 23, 7-8 pm  

Black Americans have long fought for full membership in the American community. Freedom, citizenship, and the right to vote were all extended to African Americans after the Civil War. But by the early 1900s, a repressive racial system known as “Jim Crow” had sabotaged these liberties. This presentation from the New-York Historical Society explores this half-century of stunning advances and reversals. It takes place on Zoom and registration is required.
