Organized by the Greater New Haven African American Historical Society and the Beinecke Library, we will come together to engage African American women’s history at the Stetson Library in the new Dixwell Q House, 197 Dixwell Avenue. The event will include a discussion of the New Haven Women’s 20th Century Club by scholar Lisa Monroe and a one-woman- performance by Karima Robinson as Ida B. Wells – who came to New Haven in 1900 to help organize the 20th Century Club. Afterwards, all are welcome to enjoy delicious treats from Lucky’s Star Bus Cafe. This event is inspired by archives, including the minutes of the earliest years – 1900 to 1902 – of the New Haven Women’s 20th Century Club, which are in the Beinecke Library and have been fully digitized, available to all online at: https://collections.library.yale.edu/catalog/31909767
