The Robinsons in Pasadena: A Life Between Segregation and Integration
In the Far West, the system of racism was not the formal system found in the South. It was instead a more fluid and uncertain system that people of color had to navigate. African Americans in Pasadena lived a reality experienced by many people of color in Southern California in the 1920s and 1930s. Mallie Robinson and her five children - Edgar, Frank, Mack, Willa Mae, and Jackie - lived in a community that straddled segregation and integration. Their experiences show the racism, discrimination, and opportunity for African Americans in Pasadena before World War II.

Doors open at 6:00 pm, with the lecture starting at 6:30 pm. Light refreshments will be served. Tickets: Free
