Reconstructing Rosa Parks: On the Civil Rights Narratives We Receive and the Ones We Need

Jeanne Theoharis is Distinguished Professor at City University of New York, and the author of numerous books and articles on the civil rights and Black Power movements, the politics of race and education, social welfare and civil rights in post-9/11 America. Her newest book is The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks (2013).

She will give a talk based on her acclaimed new book The Rebellious Life of Mrs. Rosa Parks (2013) the first serious biography of Parks--in which she overturns the canonized story of Parks as a one-time resister, reminding us of her life-long commitment to the black freedom struggles of the South and the North.

This event is part of a series of events for African History Month and to mark the anniversaries of the United States Civil Rights & Voting Rights Acts.
