February 22, Charles L. Blockson Lecture on Frances E.W. Harper

February 22, 2PM Charles L. Blockson Afro-American Collection, Sullivan Hall Charles L. Blockson, founder and Curator Emeritus, will discuss resources in the Blockson Collection related to Frances Ellen Watkins Harper, the poet and abolitionist. Harper’s list of accomplishments is remarkable: she was the first woman to teach at Union Seminary in Ohio, she gave a moving speech before the National Women’s Rights Convention, and was elected Vice-President of the National Association of Colored Women in 1897. This program serves as the Blockson Collection Women’s History Month event.
