Fireside Chat: The Remarkable Nellie Francis
Hennepin History Museum
Minneapolis, MN
Share this event:

In celebration of Womens Herstory Month and the 100th anniversary of Womens Suffrage, we welcome Dr. William (Bill) Green to share fascinating information about one of Minnesotas unsung heroines, Nellie Griswold Francis (1874-1969). Nellie moved to Minnesota in 1883 and was the only African American graduate of St. Paul High School in 1891. A remarkable woman at a young age, she made her mark championing, among others, the causes of race relations, suffrage for all women, and writing anti-lynching legislation. In 1927, her husband was appointed as U.S. Minister and Consul to Liberia, and the couple moved to Monrovia.

Dr. Green is a Professor of History at Augsburg University, Minneapolis. He has thought deeply and written extensively about race relations and civil rights. He holds PhD and JD degrees, which add to the perspective he brings to these subjects. Author of three books and numerous articles and op-ed pieces.
