Fridays at Newcomb

White Gloves, Pearls, and Pig Farms: The Other Civil Rights Activists of the 1960s

featuring Rebecca Tuuri

Date: Friday, March 15, 2013
Time: 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM
Building: Caroline Richardson Building, Anna Many Lounge
Location: uptown campus

 This talk will examine the history of the behind-the-scenes activism of middle class black and white women of the National Council of Negro Women.  Unlike the more public, highly-visible, and confrontational tactics of more well-known civil rights activists, these women worked privately to provide funding and support to more radical, grassroots-based activism in Mississippi throughout the 1960s. Rebecca Tuuri is visiting assistant professor of history at Tulane University.
