Unable to enjoy a carefree childhood in the United States, Black children like Till became important actors in the Black freedom struggle. Using the Brown v. Board decision (1954) and the death of Emmett Till, this talk will examine the contributions of Black children to the early years of the civil rights movement.
Presented by Pr. Mekala Audain, an Associate Professor in the history department at The College of New Jersey, where she teaches African American history courses. She earned her PhD in history from Rutgers University. She is currently finishing a book about fugitive slaves from Louisiana and Texas who escaped to Mexico between 1804 and 1865.
