Race, Racism, and the Making of American History

Christina Proenza-Coles and Elizabeth Pryor
American Founders / Colored Travelers

Join Christina Proenza-Coles, author of American Founders: How People of African Descent Established Freedom in the New World, and Elizabeth Stordeur Pryor, daughter of comedic icon Richard Pryor and author of Colored Travelers: Mobility and the Fight for Citizenship Before the Civil War, for a timely and thought-provoking program that looks at how we think and talk about race, racism, and history in America—the words we use and the words we avoid, the stories we tell and those we forget, and the people who are included in or excluded from our national narrative.
