Home to established African American institutions and communities, Washington, D.C., offered women in the New Negro movement a unique setting for the fight against racial and gender oppression. In her 2017 book, "Colored No More," Treva Lindsey traces how African American women of the late-nineteenth and early twentieth century made significant strides toward making the nation's capital a more equal and dynamic urban center.

Free and open to the public. Light reception and book signing to follow.
