      CANCELED - Book Lunch with Author Anna-Lisa Cox

      Thu., Oct. 1, 2020, 12 – 1 p.m. PDT

      Faculty and Staff are invited to join author Anna-Lisa Cox for a book lunch discussion of “The Bone and Sinew of the Land: America’s Forgotten Black Pioneers and the Struggle for Equality."

      Space is limited. You will receive an email to confirm your attendance. Book and lunch are provided for free.

      Anna-Lisa Cox is an award winning historian on the history of racism and race relations in nineteenth-century America. She is a non-resident Fellow at Harvard University's Hutchins Center for African and African American Research. Her book "The Bone & Sinew of the Land" was honored by the Smithsonian Magazine as one of their eight best history books of 2018.
      About the book: Before there was a city of Chicago, before Los Angeles, when Detroit was still a Fort, African American pioneers were succeeding and rising on the nation's earliest frontier. This is their story – a story buried by violence and denial – a story of success on a level never thought possible, and the backlash against that rising.
