Thursday, February 21, 6:00 pm, Lecture on Black Nationalist Women at Sarah Lawrence. "Historians of the era generally portray the period between the Garvey movement of the 1920s and the Black Power movement of the 1960s as one of declining black nationalist activism, but Keisha N. Blain reframes the Great Depression, World War II, and the early Cold War as significant eras of black nationalist—and particularly, black nationalist women's—ferment." "Set the World on Fire: Black Nationalist Women and the Global Struggle for Freedom," part of Sarah Lawrence's Women's History Colloquium, is free and open to the public and will be presented at 6:00 pm in the Slonim House Living Room, 911 Kimball Avenue, on the campus of Sarah Lawrence College.
