Speaker Series with Alison Rose Jefferson | September 21

Monday, September 21, 2020 — 12:00 pm

Historian and Author Alison Rose Jefferson shares her research on early African American Leisure Sites and the implications today

Segregation existed right here at our most scenic recreational sites, from beaches to mountains. Dr. Jefferson’s fresh approach examines these public places holding a central place in the long freedom rights struggle. By reconstructing the stories of the African American experience left out of, or marginalized, in the telling of American history, they become a useful tool in the struggle for social justice. Alison will give an overview of her book, Living the California Dream: African American Leisure Sites during the Jim Crow Era, which includes case studies and interpretations.
