Race and Gender Discussions
Discussion Title: Racism and Gender: Exploring the Relationship Between Black and White Women.We are proud of the fact that our branch was responsible for racially integrating AAUW in 1954, thanks to the leadership of Alice Cole and Mary Church Terrell. The decision split the branch in two and probably other branches as well, but it made the AAUW a leader in racial equality as well as gender equality. As the result, our board approved the Race and Gender discussions that took place between June and November 2020.
The branch book discussion group meets monthly to discuss an eclectic assortment of books chosen by the members.
Mary Church Terrell Foundation
Named in honor of Mary Church Terrell (1863 to 1954), a long-time member of the branch who was an educator, writer, lecturer, club woman and civil rights activist.
