May 11, 2020 @ 6:30 pm 8:00 pm

Free Donations Encouraged

Pair your favorite at-home beverage with this history lesson! All History Happy Hours are free but registration is required for streaming access.

How did the creation of the black citizen affect the political engagement of black churches?  Discover the changes brought about as black people became leaders in their own churches and learn how these churches created the political success of one of the most famous biracial political coalitions of the post-emancipation era—the Readjuster Movement. 
Speaker: Nicole Turner, VCU
