History Book Festival Presents Alison M. Parker | Unceasing Militant
In collaboration with the History Book Festival, join us for a talk with Alison M. Parker, author of Unceasing Militant: The Life of Mary Church Terrell, an offering of the 2021 virtual History Book Festival.
Born into slavery during the Civil War, Mary Church Terrell (1863–1954) would become one of the most prominent activists of her time, with a career bridging the late 19th century to the civil rights movement of the 1950s. The first president of the National Association of Colored Women and a founding member of the NAACP, Terrell collaborated closely with the likes of Frederick Douglass, Ida B. Wells, and W. E. B. Du Bois. This is the first full-length biography of Terrell, bringing her vibrant voice and personality to life.
Alison M. Parker is department chair and Richards Professor of American History at the University of Delaware. Her research and teaching interests include U.S. women’s and gender history, African American history, and legal history.
