CD Forum presents American Heritage Series: Black Women in the West
***Tickets still available at the door!*** The CD Forum celebrates its 10th Anniversary Season by honoring our past and looking to our future. Too often, the Black experience in America is limited to the North and South, but the Black West is the frontier of a unique history. Join the CD Forum as we explore Blacks in the West with our American Heritage Series. Our second discussion focuses on the significant role Black women played in the settling of the West. The impact of Black women pioneers is often marginalized or unacknowledged. Through developing the first womens clubs, homesteading and running brothels, Black women shaped the Old West as madams, mothers, cowgirls, society ladies, and more. Co-sponsored by the Northwest African American Museum.
American Heritage is an ongoing series of lectures and discussions that offer new perspectives on the role of African-Americans in American History.
