Museum of the City of New York

Fifty years ago, civil rights activists from across the country came together in Mississippi to fight entrenched racism and voter repression. To mark the anniversary of 1964’s Freedom Summer, we examine one of its key players, Civil Rights and Black Power leader Stokely Carmichael. Tufts University Professor of History Peniel Joseph will discuss Stokely: A Life, his biography spanning Carmichael’s boyhood in the Bronx, his role in New York’s 1960s political activist culture, his organizing in the South, and his global vision of liberation. Book signing to follow.

This event is co-sponsored by The Andrew Goodman Foundation and presented as part of the Activist New York program series, made possible by The Puffin Foundation.

Admission is free, please RSVP.
