Author Dr. Treva Lindsey will discuss her new book Colored No More: Reinventing Black Womanhood in Washington, D.C.  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. Colored No More 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. Offered in partnership with Gramercy Books, copies of Lindsey's book will be available for purchase and signing.
